About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Aubergine & Green pepper Rich Pasta sauce

As Ive no room left in the freezer and the aubergines and peppers are still pushing out tons of fruit, and look to continue for a while yet. Ive been making this pasta sauce.
In a large roasting tin, I use a good sized turkey tin.
Chop plenty of aubergines, peppers, onions and garlic, good dash of olive oil, and a large glug of balsamic vinegar. Then chop and add an equal amount of fresh tomatoes. Sprinkle with dried oregano and roast in the oven till all cooked down and thick and gloopy as in my tomoato puree recipe , which is here somewhere.
Blend with a hand wizzer, add a dash of sugar if needed. put into hot sterilised jars , cover top with olive oil and screw on lids tight . will store for all winter.
Good as pasta sauce, on pizza.
