Sauce

400ml passata or crushed tinned tomatoes

Pinch of sugar

1 garlic clove, crushed

½ onion, diced

Salt and ground black pepper

 

Method:

1. Wilt the spinach by adding a couple of tbsp of boiling water and covering with a lid. Steam for a couple of minutes and then drain. Leave to cool.

2. In the meantime, lightly fry the garlic in a little olive oil for a couple of minutes until soft.
