⁃ Handful of fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish

⁃ Vegan Parmesan, to garnish


⁃ heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat then add the shallots and garlic and cook for around 15-20mins, until the shallots have softened with some brown edges. Cook your pasta al dente in the final 10 mins (see packet for instructions).

⁃ add the chilli to the frying pan and let it cook for a minute then add the purée and sun-dried tomatoes, stirring well to combine. Cook for a couple of minutes stirring constantly to avoid the sauce catching. Thin the sauce with the pasta water to your desired consistency, adding a little at a time. Toss the pasta in the sauce then divide into bowls and grate over with a little vegan parm. Top with the reserved tomatoes and sprinkle over with fresh parsley. delicious.
