Before you start

Oven preheated to 180 degrees | Food processor or high speed blender | Casserole dish

For the romesco sauce

  • For the red peppers, trim the stalk, remove the seeds and roughly chop. Peel and roughly chop the shallots. Cut the garlic bulb in half to release the cloves. Transfer the prepped veg and cherry tomatoes into a large roasting tray, sprinkle with the paprika, sugar and salt. Transfer to the oven and roast for 25 minutes, or until soft. Pop the almonds onto a second roasting tray, and roast for 10 minutes, until the nutty aromas are released

While the vegetables are roasting cook the pasta

  • Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Once cooked, drain away the water and spread over a large casserole dish

Return to the sauce

  • When the vegetables are soft, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly, squeeze the roasted garlic cloves from the bulb. Transfer to a food processor, add the almonds (reserving a handful for garnish if you want) and sherry vinegar and blend until you have a smooth sauce

Make the bake

  • Pour the red pepper sauce over the pasta and stir to coat. Then stir through the grated cheese
  • Bake in a hot oven until the cheese is melted, about 8 minutes
