Let’s take it back to basics!

Prego Sauce

wanderers club Chef's Corner, March 2017 6


  • 3 TBS Good Quality Olive Oil.
  • 2 Red and ripe tomatoes, you can roughly chop these.
  • 130ml Red wine – Maybe a glass for you as well!
  • 2 Cloves of fresh garlic chopped finely.
  • 1 red or green chili depending on how hot you want it. Chopped fine.
  • Dash or two of Tabasco Chipotle.
  • 1 small tin of tomato paste.

What to do!

  • Take a medium sauce pan and turn the heat up to between 4 -5 or medium heat.
  • Add the 3 TBS of olive oil, garlic, chili and let us simmer.
  • We like to add a little smokiness so Tabasco Chipotle – just a dash or two.
  • Once the ingredients has started to simmer, turn up the heat a little and add the red wine. This will deglaze the pan and add extra flavour.
  • Once the alcohol has burnt off and in your chopped tomatoes, turn the heat down and simmer away.
  • Add in two teaspoons of the tomato paste and let this all cook down.
  • Leave it simmering for about 15mins or until a nice semi thick consistency has been created.


Add this to your favourite pasta or sear off some minute stacks and make a classic Prego roll!

Be safe in the kitchen and always take precaution when cooking!
