This vibrant, zesty pasta dish is a little unusual in its flavour combination. But as the orange, smoked paprika and maple syrup cook in the oven, they become sticky and sweet, adding to the intensity of the tomato sauce. 

Our classic tomato sauce recipe is a good one to add to your repertoire, to be used in pasta dishes and beyond…

Ingredients

  • 8 ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 orange, cut into 6 wedges
  • 1 tbsp light olive oil
  • ¼ tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 300g egg-free pappardelle or other dried pasta
  • 150g pitted green olives, roughly chopped
  • 2 large handfuls mixed herbs or rocket, roughly chopped
  • 50g mixed seeds or roughly chopped nuts (such as almonds, hazelnuts or pine nuts)
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C fan/gas 6. Put the tomatoes and orange wedges in a roasting tin, toss with the light olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and the paprika. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, then add the garlic and maple syrup and cook for 10 minutes more. Squeeze the juice
    and flesh from the orange wedges into the tin, then discard the skin.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions so it’s ready as the tomatoes finish cooking. Drain the pasta and tip into the roasting tin with a little cooking water. Toss to coat.
