  • Hey lovely people! We are going to do a three-minute tomato sauce that is so
  • delicious, so quick, so easy. So, next time you get home from work and you feel like
  • you need something, that's like a little hug, that makes you feel good. Then make a
  • nice little sauce yourself. So, let's just start this off. Let's do a three-minute
  • tomato sauce, let's put a pan on full whack, we want to be quick. On the journey
  • that I've been in food, around the world, I've eaten some incredible things but
  • sometimes when I'm busy, right, sometimes when I want comfort food I go back to
  • this kinda dish and to make me happy is this. Your humble chili. So, chili everyone
  • gets scared off because it's hot. The heats not really in the red fruit, right,
  • it's in the little white part here and the seeds. So, if we remove this, then we
  • can take away that aggressively and we can amplify fruitiness.
  • So, best friends garlic, two cloves finely slice, garlic's one of those things that
  • just brings flavor together. We're going to go in a pan with a nice little log of
  • oil. I'm going to go in with the garlic. We'll do the same with the chili. I'm
  • gonna use basil. So, first up, I'll take the leaves off but
  • these stalks don't throw these stalks away. Get them sliced up so we put the
  • chopped up stalks into this dish, you'll get flavour, the stalks tend to have that
  • kind of slightly green house flavour which I love. So, that goes in then I'm
  • gonna go in with some tomatoes. Now, tomato sauces, when you're getting your
  • tomatoes, if you want the best quality, the A grade tomatoes go whole, right. The
  • B grade you're going to passata and to chop. With clean hands put the
  • tomatoes into your hand and then just rub it and break it. You don't need a
  • blender, you don't need a sieve, use your hand, right. So, crush it up. Also, I'll
  • clean out this tin with just a little swig of water. So, that pasta sauce is
  • pretty much done. Now, as that comes to the boil, I've got a little cheat, a
  • little hack for you. Here is everyday fresh lasagna sheets from the
  • supermarkets. It's fresh pasta, of course, you can use any pasta that you want. But,
  • we can take something that's available and cut it different ways to give you
  • something that really makes you feel that you've put a bit of love into it. If
  • I go really fine, like this, we can do tagliolini. If we go slightly fatter you
  • got tagliatelle, if you go even further on that too,
  • that's pappardele. But, I'm just gonna, I'm just gonna cut it badly you like a
  • complete idiot, right, and then into our seasoned water. We'll go in with our
  • pasta. So, we're going to have a really humble nice dish. We could absolutely
  • pimp up the flavour and the nutrition. If we like went to our freezer, as for any
  • good person on planet Earth, right. I've got some frozen peas, 80 grams as a
  • portion, that's one of your five fruit and vegetable day. You got your tomatoes
  • in there as well. Delicious. You know we're making quick food but we're
  • adapting, we're ducking, we're diving. So, there could be a little bit of flake
  • tinned tuna in there. There could be olives in there. Look at that, I want to seize it,
  • to taste. This is ready. Here we go. This is an important moment. Here, guys see how
  • that's draining the water. Most people, certainly in Britain, will drain stuff in
  • the colander and it will sit there and it will steam and that pasta will go
  • like craggy. So, actually one of the gifts of pasta is the water, the starchy water.
  • So, in we go without badly cut pasta and then feed it just a little bit of that
  • water. Will have a nice little toss up. I'll cook it for the last 30 seconds in
  • the sauce and of course it sucks up the sauce. So, it all becomes like a beautiful
  • thing. Now one of my favourite cheese's to have, of course with a pasta like this, is
  • a parmesan. Well then put it onto a nice platter.
  • Those little peas, beautiful. Now, we can have a smaller bag of leaves on top. Kiss
  • of nice extra virgin olive oil and a little tweak. Take your humble feta and
  • go for long strokes because there's all about that kind of slightly tangy cheese.
  • That is a very simple beautiful beautiful basic tomato sauce, that is so
  • exciting and delicious. But this recipe is dedicated to the one and only Davina
  • McCall, who I am working with today. I'm coming with forks, I've bought forks, I've been very
  • desperate to try this, it looks amazing. Now, are you pleased. I am pleased.
  • Simple but tasty. That is so lovely, few peas in there, I love the feta, yeah, and really exciting
  • to see how this works as well. Yeah, we've been mostly making
  • shirt a bit tomatoey. Yeah, so, we're doing a documentary to celebrate your 20 years
  • of The Naked Chef. We've had an amazing time and it's been lovely getting to
  • know you and seeing how you work. So, I've been such an enormous fan for so long. So,
  • you've got to watch the show. It'd be out very very soon. So, watch out for it
  • what's gonna happen in the next 20 years. Yeah, okay if you want to do anything
  • with this recipe, if you've got ideas of other things you can put in it, put it in
  • the comments box below. What do you do to pimp up your basic tomato sauce and make
  • it delicious? Lots of love from me and Davina.
