COOK'S TIPS

Prepared tomato based pasta sauces can give many recipes a tangy flavour. Unlike paste or puree, they also offer a chunky tomato texture.

Serve the potatoes with a salad and wholemeal bread rolls for a nutritionally balanced meal treat includes the necessary protein, carbohydrates and fibre.
