Quick and Easy Irish Italian Pasta Sauce

The parents of Suma member Paul recently went on a family visit to Ireland. His mum’s cousin Jim was pleased to hear Paul is working at a cooperative, and doubly so when he found out it was Suma. For some time now Jim’s wife Liliana, who is Italian, has been making a pasta sauce with the essential ingredient being Suma organic chopped tomatoes. Liliana insists that no other tomatoes will do. We agree with Liliana; we think our organic chopped tomatoes are the best!


  1. 2 tins Suma organic chopped tomatoes (LJ080)
  2. 2 tablespoons Suma organic olive oil (GT017)
  3. 1 teaspoon Suma organic mixed herbs (HE380)
  4. 4 large organic peppers (mixed colours)
  5. 1 medium organic onion
  6. 1 clove organic garlic
  7. salt and pepper to taste


  1. heat oil slowly in a 3 pint saucepan
  2. add the chopped onion and chopped garlic, fry gently, do not allow to brown
  3. wash the peppers, remove seeds, cut into quarters then into 1 inch squares
  4. add peppers to the onion and garlic and cook gently for 10 minutes
  5. add tinned tomatoes
  6. put the lid on the saucepan and cook gently until the peppers are soften to your liking
  7. season with salt and pepper to taste
