  • 200 g (7 oz) dried penne rigate pasta (quills with ridges)
  • 400 g (14 oz) tin of chopped tomatoes

  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  1. Sauté the garlic and chillis in the oil for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add in the tomatoes. Stir and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes to thicken the sauce.
  3. Meanwhile bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente (about 7-8 minutes).
  4. Once the sauce is thickened add in the parsley, season with salt and mix well.
  5. Drain the pasta and add to the sauce. Mix well and serve.
Titli's Tips
The chillis can be substituted with dried chilli flakes – about ½-1 tsp should be enough.

Garnish with some grated hard Italian cheese such as Parmesan or Gran Padano.
