Quick and simple vegan tomato sauce

A classic but super yummy recipe for pasta lovers!

I’ve served it with full wheat pasta, baked tofu (Italian style), vegan parmesan and herbs.

As a child I ate my pasta with only a tiny bit of sauce. Today the sauce is my highlight! This one is super rich in flavour and creamy – not watery at all!
