Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, finely chopped
  • 2 small carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 260g jarred roasted peppers, drained and roughly chopped
  • 250ml vegetable stock
  • 4 fresh bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp sundried tomato paste (optional)
  • 20g dill, leaves chopped
  • 500g pasta

Method

Step 1

Pour 2tbsp of the oil into a large heavy-based pan on a medium-low heat. Add the onion, celery and carrots and sauté for 3 mins with the lid on.

Step 2

Next add the tinned tomatoes, peppers, stock, bay leaves and seasoning. If you’re using the tomato paste add it now (it lends a lovely rich flavour). Bring to the boil then turn down to simmer with the lid on for 15 mins.

Step 3

When the sauce is done, remove the pan from the heat and discard the bay leaves (either leave the sauce chunky or use a stick blender to whizz it to a smooth consistency). Then add the chopped dill and the remaining 1tbsp of olive oil, stir together and set aside with the lid on for the flavours to develop while you cook the pasta.

Step 4

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to pack instructions, until al dente. Drain and add the pasta to the sauce, mix thoroughly and serve.
