A Dinner Recipe for you

How has your weekend been going so far? Mine hasn't been too bad, a spot of grocery shopping and fun shopping and then there was the housework, not so exciting. So after all the housework etc. I wasn't really up to cooking anything that took up too much time so I decided to make a favourite in our house, Pasta with Tomato and Red Wine Sauce served with some garlic bread. It is really quick, easy and very tasty. The recipe says it serves 4 but I usually double the recipe because we love it so much. Give it a try, you won't be sorry. Bye for now!

30g butter
1 medium onion chopped (I don't add this because I don't like onions much)
1 clove garlic crushed
410g can tomatoes
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1 small chicken stock cube crumbled
1 teaspoon cornflour
1 tablespoon water extra
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1. Melt butter in frying pan, add onion and garlic, stir constantly over medium heat until onion is soft. Add undrained crushed tomatoes, wine, water, tomato paste and stock cube, bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
2. Stir in blended cornflour and extra water. Stir constantly over high heat until mixture boils and thickens. Stir in sugar and herbs. Serve tomato sauce over hot pasta.
