Tasty homemade pasta sauce

Hey guys! I wanted to share another one of my go to recipes with you. This is my homemade pasta sauce recipe. I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious!! :D

Ingredients

* 1 onion
* 1 bulb of garlic
* 5-7 tomatoes
* 1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow pepper (I only had green peppers today)
* Chili powder (You can use fresh chilies if you prefer)
* Paprika (Optional)
* Salt and pepper
* Chicken stock (Optional)

Method

1. Boil pasta/spaghetti until fully cooked. Do NOT drain the water away yet! It will make it go sticky. Leave it in the water until you are ready to add the sauce.
2. Chop up the onion, garlic, peppers and tomatoes.
3. Fry your garlic and onions in olive oil. Add the peppers and fry for a few minutes.
4. Add the tomatoes. They will slowly start to water down. If you don’t feel like there is enough sauce you can add water. I sometimes add just a little chicken stock for extra flavour.
5. Cook for about 15 mins then drain your pasta/spaghetti and add to the sauce.
6. Mix well then enjoy!! :D
