Hearty Red Sauce

I made this one day after reading a fellow foodies Instagram post about this fab sauce. We just had a party and had a lot of left over veggies from a grazing platter and this was going to be perfect to use them up. It’s rich, flavorful and has a lovely texture. You can use this sauce as a base for a variety of Italian dishes. I’ve even used for a grilled halloumi cheese appetizer. It’s just super versatile.
