Salsa Agrodolce (Italian Sweet And Sour Sauce)

This easy and quick sauce is wonderful with short pasta such a spend and farfalle, rice or with breadcrumbed meats. It also tastes fantastic with sardines. You can make more and freeze it.

olive oil
1 carrot, grated
1 onion, fine chopped
1 stick celery, finely chopped
500g passata
1 thyme branch, leaves only
1tsp sugar
2tbsp white wine vinegar
salt and pepper

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a pan, add the carrot, onion and celery and sweat for a few minutes.

Add the passata, thyme leaves and sugar then cook, partially covered with a lid, for 25 minutes, stirring regularly.

Add the vinegar and season to taste, then mix well. Remove from the heat and use or store.
