Tomato Sauce Pasta

This is a pretty classic tomato sauce recipe made from scratch to go with your pasta. No canned tomatoes, no ketchup, but only fresh ingredients for you to enjoy what nature offers. Give it a try and you'll never turn back to using store bought pasta sauce again the next time you cook pasta. This recipe yields 3 servings.

Ingredients:

3 large tomatoes, cut into pieces
2 stick celery, cut into pieces
1/2 red bell pepper (green or yellow ones are fine too but red ones give a nice colour to the pasta sauce), cut into pieces
8-10 tablespoon ground beef
1 small yellow onion, chopped
5 clove garlic, chopped
Some broccoli, boiled
Some mixed herb 
Pasta, cooked until al dente

Method:

Blend tomatoes, celery, and bell pepper together into puree (I use a stick blender). Heat some oil in a wok. Add onion and garlic. Fry until fragrant and add ground beef. Stir fry beef until it changes colour. Add tomato, celery, and bell pepper puree. Add a dash of mixed herb. Stir pasta sauce for 5-10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring the sauce to a boil and pour sauce over cooked pasta. Garnish with cooked broccoli. Serve hot.

I used spaghetti for the adult's portion and spirals for my tiny human's portion since it's easier for her to self feed. :D
