Creamy Tomato Pasta Sauce


  • 10 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 baby aubergine (egg plant), chopped
  • 1 courgette chopped
  • 1 cup of passata
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 250ml of chicken stock
  • 5 laughing cow lights (approx 9 syns)
  • sprinkling of Italian herbs (I used dried)
  • Frylight/Pam Spray
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Place the tomatoes in a bowl, and cover with boiling hot water, to loosen skin. Peel off skin, then remove seeds and chopped.
  2. Place a non stick frying pan over a medium heat, spray with some Frylight or Pam spray.
  3. Add, the onion, garlic, chilli, aubergine and courgette and cook until softened. Approx 5 mins.
  4. Add the tomatoes, passata, italian herbs and most of the stock, leaving a few tablespoons in the jug.
  5. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer until sauce reduces down, approx 15-20mins. But keep an eye on it, as you dont want it to reduce too much.
  6. Add the 5 laughing cow lights to the remaining chicken stock and whisk until you have a smooth mixture.
  7. Make sure sauce is on a low heat and then gradually add in the laughing cow light mixture, stirring as you do. This is what will make your sauce nice and creamy.
  8. Season with salt and pepper if needed and pour over cooked pasta for a delicious meal.
  9. NOTE: If you want to have this sauce syn free, then you can count the laughing cow lights as part of you HEa, just make sure you get the rest of your HEa portion into your meals somewhere else throughout the day. As of course the sauce serves 4 and only has 1 HEa portion for the entire recipe.
