1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the peppers and onion with a pinch of salt for 6-8 mins until tender. Stir in the garlic, fry for 1 min, then tip in the tomatoes with half a can of water (200ml). Simmer for 10 mins until the sauce thickens slightly.
2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta to pack instructions. Drain well, reserving 100ml cooking water.
3. Add the crème fraîche and mackerel to the tomato sauce and warm through for 2 mins, breaking up any large pieces of mackerel with a spoon; season. Fold in the pasta and toss to coat in the sauce, adding a little of the reserved water to loosen if you need. Scatter with the basil leaves to serve.
