The day after....leftovers


This was even fitter the day after...gnocchi with a thyme and rosemary tomato sauce, roasted veg and a shit tonne of parmesan and black pepper :-)

Propper Italian tomato sauce- Sauce for enough for 4-6 people

1 x white onion- finely diced
3 x garlic cloves- crushed with the side of the knife/or palm of your hand then finely sliced/cubed
2 x carrots -finely sliced into cubes 
2 x big sprigs of fresh thyme 
Fresh or dried oregano - big shake or a sprig
2 x sprigs of fresh rosemary 
2 x tins tomatoes 
Salt & black pepper
teaspoon of white sugar or squeeze of ketchup

Cook up the onions, carrot and garlic in oil on a low heat until translucent, this should take around 5-8mins then add the tomatoes and herbs and let it cook away for a good couple of hours. I like to leave the sauce over night then reheat and serve the next day. 

On this occasion I did the double, cooked it the night before, served it for dinner the next day then reheated the leftovers the day after.

I also managed to forget to serve the roasted veg on the night, so reheated these and had them the day after also!! Uppps, how do I always do that!

Here we all end of the table!!!
