Greek-Inspired Spaghetti Sauce recipe


  • 1 small onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 200g Passata
  • 1 tbsp. capers
  • 1 tsp. dried chilli flakes
  • 15 pitted black olives
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 50g crumbled feta

  1. Finely chop the garlic, capers, olives, and the onion. You want them all to be in equal-sized pieces.

  3. Add the chopped tomatoes, capers, olives, Passata, balsamic vinegar, dried chilli flakes and a healthy pinch each of salt and pepper.

  4. Simmer the mixture for at least half an hour or up to two hours.

  5. To serve, rip the basil leaves up and sprinkle them over the top along with the crumbled feta.

  6. Toss with spaghetti.
