1 medium onion
2 fresh birdeye chillies (or ordinary chillies if birdeye aren't available)
6 cloves of garlic
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 sweet pepper (any colour)
Dried mixed herbs
Dark Soy Sauce (instead of salt)
Finely chop the Sweet pepper, onion, chillies and garlic. If you have a food processor then put these in with about half a tin of the chopped tomatoes and blend for about 15 seconds. Then add a desert spoon of dried tarragon, and a teaspoon of mixed herbs. Add the rest of the first tin of tomatoes and blend for another 15 seconds. Place in a microwave safe bowl and zap for 10 minutes.
Take out of microwave and add 2 x 6 inch worms of tomato puree and the same of garlic puree. Add a teaspoon of Dark Soy Sauce, a teaspoon of sugar and a desert spoon of Olive Oil and finally the other tin of chopped tomatoes (you can of course use ordinary tinned tomatoes and chop them yourself).
Zap for another 10minutes in the microwave and allow to rest for about 5 minutes. Taste – and add whatever you need from the above ingredients if needed – and finally enjoy. The resulting 'Arrabiatta' should suffice for 4 servings if you add cooked bacon, mushrooms or whatever takes your fancy.
