Pasta arrabbiata…

…Joflakes style! This was made after I had a version in a restaurant which was average…I thought I could do better…and I did! 

Ingredients for one

1/4 tub passata 

1 garlic clove, chopped

Several olives, black sliced (I used tinned ones)

Half teaspoon crushed dried chilli

Half teaspoon Italian dried herbs

Olive oil (dash)

100g (ish) wholewheat pasta

Grated mozzarella style vegan cheese (I used Tofutti which comes grated)

3-4 leaves fresh basil

How to

1. Chop up your garlic and cook in the oil with the crushed chilli for a few minutes on a medium heat until soft.

2. Add the passata and Italian herbs. Cook on a low heat for about 30 minutes, adding a little water if it gets too thick. I think I added about 4-5 tablespoons.

3. After about 15 minutes, pop on your pasta to cook in another pan.

4. Drain the pasta when it is done.

5. Take the sauce off the heat, and add in the olives and the basil leaves. Just rip the basil up!


6. Combine with the pasta.

7. Serve, sprinkling a little fake cheese on top! Yummy!
