Ingredients

  • 800g ripe tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 2 yellow peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 400g pasta twists or shells
  • 75g pitted black olives
  • Good handful fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 40g shaved vegetarian Parmesan

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7. Divide the tomatoes, peppers and sliced garlic between 2 roasting tins. Sprinkle with the sugar, drizzle with the oil and season well with salt and pepper. Give the tins a good shake and roast for 40 minutes, stirring halfway.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions or until al dente. Drain, reserving some of the cooking water, and return both to the pan. Pour the hot vegetables over the pasta, then add the olives and basil and gently stir together.
  3. Serve the pasta in warmed bowls, scattered with the Parmesan.

  1. This was a lovely fresh tasting recipe, I will be making it again. I added a few anchovies into the dish as I happened to have some in the fridge. I melted them in the bottom of the pan once the pasta had been drained and then mixed it all back in the pan together.
