Bacon and Tomato Sauce

This is a simple, flavoursome bacon and tomato sauce and is ideal to use with pasta, or as a base for pizza. The smoked bacon adds warmth and slight saltiness, which blends well with the fresh, sharper flavours of the tomato. Ale-gar©® introduces some spice, depth and richness, giving the recipe a real point of difference.
