Fry for a minute more. 4. Add the passata, half fill the empty passata jar with cold water and add to the pan. Add the sugar. Bring to the boil and then quickly reduce the heat and allow to simmer very gently for 30 minutes, stirring from time to time. 5. Serve with cooked pasta and a generous sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Variation 1 For a richer sauce stir a tablespoon of mascarpone cheese into the sauce at the end.

After simmering the sauce for 25 minutes add a can of chick peas and continue to simmer for 5 minutes. Serve with couscous or rice.
