Cheap & Easy Homemade Tomato Sauce

If you saw my meal planning post last Monday you will see that this month I have started my Christmas shopping so I'm not that flush this month, mind you on maternity pay when are you ever flush. It has meant I have started to be a lot more creative in the kitchen making food go further and creating different cheap meals.
Here is a Tomato Sauce I made it was mega easy and used a lot of the left overs from my Chicken Paella. Again I followed my own rules and you can alter this to suit yourself by adding different things and uping to the portion sizes.
Pasta Twirls
1 Can of chopped tomatoes
1/2 chopped pepper
1/2 chopped onion
1 chopped chilli
1 tsp chopped garlic
In one saucepan cook your pasta whilst this is cooking in another pan add oil and soften the onions and peppers and then add then add the tomatoes.
Then add the garlic and chilli cook the sauce through for about 10 minutes when it starts to boil turn down the heat and gently simmer.
Once the sauce and pasta are done drain the pasta and then stir the sauce in to the pasta and serve. I added some grated chedder cheese on top just to make it extra yummy.
As I said you could alter this to suit your own tastes perhaps add some mushrooms, I also think that this would taste really nice with either chicken or tuna.
