Whenever I return from my travels and days of exotic eating, all I crave is simple home cooked food. I have just returned from South Africa and so tonight I am cooking a simple tomato-based sauce for pasta. Fry an onion, garlic and a red chilli, along with some chopped bacon. Add a tin of chopped tomatoes and some red wine. Season, add mixed herbs, fresh basil, a little tomato sauce (it’s good honest!), tobasco and Worchester sauce to give it a bit of a bite. Then simply leave to cook slowly. Delicious…..
