This sauce is one that I have been doing since I started to cook at about 14 and I never get tired of it.
Its so simple to make and you can freeze it too.

Onion x2
Garlic Cloves x3
Tinned Tomatoes
Fresh tomatoes
Mushrooms one tin chopped
2 red green or yellow peppers.
tobasco Sauce (x4 drops)

Frylight the chopped onions, and garlic together. Whilst doing this heat the tinned tomatoes in a saucepan, once the onions are grown pour in and add to the heated pan. Then Cut up the peppers lengthways, and frylight these till brown ish and then add to the rest of the ingredients to the pan apart from the sweetner. Keep cooking for about 10 - 15 mins and add x2 tbp sweetner and keep cooking.
Let it cool down and then bumg in a blender.

Once aubergines are ready, wash the sweat and salt off and then cut into cubes and also fry these until brown.
