12-Minute Tomato Sauce

Got 12 minutes?! Then you have time to make this sauce! It’s simple, fast, delicious and garlicky. Made with high-quality Biodynamic® ingredients, the flavours are super rich and deeply satisfying. The dish is vegan, but what you grate, crumble or drizzle on top is your business. I love fresh basil, plenty of good olive oil and freshly cracked black pepper!

In partnership with Solspring® this simple dish highlights Biodynamic® pasta, tomato purée, tomato concentrate, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. The luscious spaghetti is made from wheat grown on Demeter Certified Biodynamic® farms in Italy. Biodynamic farming practices are conscious, creative, and holistic. Certified Biodynamic® products require regenerative, soil-first farming practices and production methods that preserve the integrity of the natural product. Biodynamic agriculture goes above and beyond most organic standards and focuses on year-after-year improvement in soil quality, limits inputs brought onto the farm and works to support all the living creatures in and around the farm: from the worms to the bees to larger farm animals and the people who engage with the farm, too.

I hope this comforting, early-autumn dish gives you a hug from the inside!
