With its classic flavours of tomato, chilli and asparagus, this pasta dish is not only quick and easy to make, it’s extremely tasty, too.

Cherry Tomatoes

16 individual, halved

Chilli, green or red

1 individual, deseeded and finely chopped

Vegetarian parmesan style hard cheese

  1. Preheat a griddle pan over a medium heat. Mist the asparagus with the cooking spray and griddle in batches for 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the tagliatelle in a pan of boiling water for 10-12 minutes, or according to pack instructions, until tender.
  3. Drain the pasta and set aside. Add the passata, tomatoes and chilli to the hot pan. Bring to the boil, then return the tagliatelle to the pan. Stir everything together gently and season to taste.
  4. Top with the griddled asparagus, sprinkle with the grated cheese and scatter over the basil leaves, to serve.
