  • 1 large red pepper, de-seeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 large yellow pepper, de-seeded and roughly chopped
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 120g baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tsp sweetener
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 tbsp tomato puree

method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas 7.
  2. Put the courgettes, peppers and onion in a large non-stick roasting tin, spray with low calorie cooking spray, season to taste and toss the vegetables well.
  3. Roast for 30 minutes, turning halfway and adding the plum tomatoes 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
