  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 140g (1 cup) cashews
  • 120ml (½ cup) almond milk
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2x 400g cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tbsp harissa paste
  • 4 portions of dried pasta (we use rigatoni)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

To serve

  • 1 tbsp nooch

Method

  1. 1.

    Prepare the ingredients | Slice open the sausages and remove the “skin” | Spoon the sausage meat into a bowl and crush using a fork | Peel and dice the onions | Finely cube the peppers | Place the cashews into a small bowl and cover with boiling water, leave to soak for at least 10 minutes

  2. 2.

    Prepare the sauce | Place a large pan over a medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil | Once warm, add the diced onions, peppers and a pinch of salt | Mix well and cook for 5-10 minutes until soft | At this point, crumble in the sausage meat and stir for 5 minutes | Mix through the dried herbs and paprika and cook for another minute | Drain the cashews and place into a powerful blender, along with the garlic clove and almond milk | Blend until smooth and creamy | Pour the cashew cream into the pan, along with the tinned tomatoes, tomato purée and harissa paste | Mix well and leave to simmer for 10 minutes

  3. 3.

    Cook the pasta | Add a big pinch of salt to a big pot of boiling water, add the pasta and cook according to the package instructions (approx 9-11 minutes, depending on the pasta) | Once cooked, drain (reserving some of the pasta water)

  4. 4.

    Finish the pasta | Pick the basil leaves and thinly slice | Mix the drained pasta through the sauce | If the sauce feels too thick, mix through some pasta water until smooth and creamy | Sprinkle half the basil over the pasta, stir the pasta into the sauce until well covered

  5. 5.

    Time to serve | Spoon the pasta into serving bowls, season with nooch and pepper, garnish with the remaining basil and serve immediately
