  • 250g pack fresh stuffed vegetarian pasta (we used Mozzarella, tomato & basil large tortelloni from Waitrose)
  • 200g pack mixed grilled or roasted peppers in oil
  • 25g pine nuts
  • Fresh basil leaves, to serve


  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes, until al dente. Drain well and return to the pan.
  2. Meanwhile, drain the mixed grilled or roasted peppers in oil (reserve 1 tablespoon of the oil if your pasta doesn't come with any), and chop. Toast the pine nuts in a dry, non-stick frying pan. Add to the pasta with the peppers, season, and gently toss together.
  3. Divide the pasta between 2 bowls and drizzle with the infused oil from the pasta pack, or the reserved oil from the peppers. Scatter with fresh basil leaves to serve, if you like.
