How to Make it

  • Soak the sundried tomatoes in boiling water for 30 minutes.
  • Drain the tomatoes, reserving 125ml of the soaking water, and roughly chop up and set aside.
  • Put the pasta on to cook according to the packeted instructions.
  • Add olive oil to a hot pan, and follow with the garlic, dried oregano, dried basil, and chilli flakes. Cook for between 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the tomato purée, roasted red pepper, reserved soaking water from the tomatoes, and chopped sundried tomatoes to the pan (be sure to reserve a couple of tablespoons of tomatoes for stirring through the pasta at the end).
  • Leave to simmer for 10 minutes and then transfer to a blender. Blend to create an almost perfectly smooth sauce.
  • Drain the pasta and return to the pot together with the sauce, beans, and reserved sundried tomatoes. Stir everything together and serve with roasted almonds, fresh basil, and dairy-free yogurt for a creamy extra.
