Making the tomato sauce:

Take your onions and sauté them in a deep cast-iron frying pan using a bit of olive oil. When the onions are slightly glassy, add your chopped garlic, red and yellow bell peppers. Then you can add your crushed tomatoes. It’s better if you make this fresh using fresh Roma tomatoes, but canned crushed tomatoes are fine in a pinch. Allow this to simmer for a total of 10 minutes before adding fresh sliced basil and turn off the heat.


  • 1 Red bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 Yellow bell pepper (diced)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 1 white onion (roughly diced)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp basil (8-10 leaves- thinly chopped)
  • Salt and pepper (to your taste)
  • 1 can crushed Roma tomatoes (795 grams/28 ounces)
