Before you start

Large deep frying pan | Large saucepan | Kettle boiled

Start the sauce

  • Finely slice the sun dried tomatoes
  • Warm the olive oil and oil from the jar of sun-dried tomatoes in the frying pan over medium heat
  • Add the capers and sun dried tomatoes to the pan and stir for 1 minute

Prepare the pasta

  • Put the saucepan on the stove, fill with boiling water from the kettle and turn the heat up high
  • Add a big pinch of salt and the mafaldine pasta to the pan and cook according to packet instructions (approx 8 minutes)

Finish the sauce

  • Turn up the heat to medium high, add the chopped tomatoes and tomato puree to the pan, stir to combine and put the lid on (leaving a gap for steam to escape) and leave to simmer for 3 minutes
  • Add the nutritional yeast and balsamic vinegar to the pan, stir to combine, put the lid back on and leave to simmer for 3 minutes
  • Taste the sauce, season to perfection and simmer for a further 2 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn't catch

Time to serve

  • Twist the pasta around in the sauce with the tongs, making sure it's well covered
  • Transfer the pasta into serving bowls, dress with rocket, balsamic vinegar, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper and serve immediately
