Tangy tomatoey sweetness and fiery chilli give this Italian-inspired dish an interesting kick.

Serves: 4
2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 red chili pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
1 sprig fresh thyme
450g (1lb) tomatoes, skinned and quartered
50g (1 3/4oz) sun-blushed tomatoes, drained
250g (9oz) pasta
350g (12oz) cherry tomatoes
Black pepper


Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/gas mark 7. Heat half the olive oil in a pan and gently cook the garlic and chili for 2-3 minutes until soft, but not browned. Add the thyme and skinned tomatoes to the pan. Heat gently and simmer uncovered, for about 10 minutes until the tomatoes are reduced to a fairly thick sauce. Stir in the sun-blushed tomatoes. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to pack instructions. Put the cherry tomatoes in a roasting tin and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Shake the pan so the tomatoes are evenly covered. Roast the tomatoes in the oven for 6-7 minutes or until they start to split. Drain the pasta and stir in the tomato sauce. Divide between four plates then gently fold in the roasted tomatoes. Serve immediately.
