Method

  1. Cook the pasta to pack instructions. Drain.
  2. While the pasta cooks, heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, chilli and basil stalks and fry for 5 mins, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften. Add The Vegetarian Butcher What the Cluck and cook for a further 5 mins. Add the roasted red peppers, 50ml water, the chopped tomatoes and basil leaves, saving a few to garnish; bring to the boil and simmer for 5 mins, stirring occasionally. 

  3. Preheat the grill to high. Mix the pasta into the sauce, then pour into a medium-sized ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with the mozzarella-alternative and place under the grill for a few mins until golden and bubbling. Serve sprinkled with the reserved basil leaves and a grind of black pepper.
