Sun Dried Tomato Pasta - Recipe

Sun-dried tomato paste adds a burst of flavour to pasta sauce.

  • A simple 10-minute pasta meal.
  • Flavours: sun-dried tomato, pine nuts, artichoke, herbs.
  • Made with cupboardy ingredients including sun-dried tomato paste, pasta and dried herbs.

Ingredients

  Sun Dried Tomato Paste 170g (Zest)
4 teaspoonfuls of sun-dried tomato paste. The flavour of sun-dried tomatoes is unmistakeable, but many people find that normal sun-dried tomatoes are a pain to use. This paste gives you all of the flavour without the need to rehydrate or chop.

  Conchiglie (Shells), Wholewheat Organic 500g (La Bio Idea)
1 cupful of pasta shells. These wholewheat shells have an absorbent texture which allows them to soak up sauces easily. For a gluten-free option, see "Other Thoughts" below.

  Basil
A sprinkle of basil.

  Oregano
A similar sprinkle of oregano.

  Crushed Chillies
Chilli flakes can be added according to taste.

  Pine Nuts | Healthy Supplies
A handful of pine nuts.

  Artichoke Hearts in Brine, Organic (Biona)
2 or 3 artichoke hearts, chopped.

  Olive Oil
A drizzle of olive oil will help to loosen and dilute the tomato paste.

Method

  • Put the pasta in a pan and cover with boiling water. Bring to a simmer.
  • Meanwhile, mix the olive oil, herbs, chilli, tomato paste and pine nuts.
  • Chop the artichoke hearts.
  • Stop boiling and drain the pasta after 10 minutes, or until the pasta has reached a soft consistency.
  • Mix well and serve.


Other Thoughts

  • The sun-dried tomato paste is very concentrated, and you do not need very much! It can be used to add flavour to pasta sauces such as bolognese, and can also be used in a red pesto blend.
  • In our opinion, this paste is actually more tasty than regular sun-dried tomatoes. It's probably because it's finely chopped and pre-soaked, but the result is a much more intense flavour.
  • This dish can be used as a light lunch, a side-dish or as the basis for a salad.
  • This pasta works particularly well when served with houmous.
