½ medium onion
½ garlic clove
1 teaspoon mixed herbs
1 teaspoon of oil
A little water

Preparation and cooking:

Add a teaspoon of oil to the saucepan
Add the finely chopped/grated onion and crushed garlic. Fry on a low heat for 5 minutes
Add the tin of tomatoes, mixed herbs and a little water. Add some black pepper
Cook on a low heat for 20 minutes. Stir the mixture a couple of times during this time
Once cooked remove from the heat and serve.

Serving suggestions:

Tip: if you would like to add a little sweetener to the sauce, a tablespoon of ketchup is perfect for doing this.
