“Impress your friends and family by cooking them this traditional Italian dish (just don't tell them it's really easy!). If you want even more taste and texture, roast a few extra cherry tomatoes on the vine and serve whole on top of the pasta.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F Place the olive oil and onion in a large roasting tin and roast for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, tomatoes and peppers. Season well and mix in with the onion. Roast for a further 30 mins until all the vegetables are softened and lightly charred.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the pack instructions and reserve a little of the cooking water. Place the roasted vegetables in a food processor and whizz for 30 secs to make a thickly textured sauce. Check the seasoning and stir in the herbs. (You can add a little extra water from the pasta if the sauce seems a bit too thick.).
  4. Pour the sauce over the cooked spaghetti and combine well. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan if you wish.
