    Roasted tomato and anchovy pasta

    This is fabulously easy: just pop the sauce ingredients in the oven to cook while you boil the pasta. Don’t be alarmed by the quantity of anchovies; the overall effect is pleasingly subtle.

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    800g cherry vine tomatoes
    2 shallots, finely chopped
    1 tbsp white wine vinegar
    2 tbsp olive oil
    100g jar anchovy fillets, drained
    2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    320g fusilli
    handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
    parmigiano reggiano, grated, to serve


    1. Preheat the oven to 230˚C, gas mark 8. Put the tomatoes, shallots, vinegar, olive oil, anchovies and garlic in a large roasting tin; season. Roast for 20-25 minutes until the tomatoes have begun to break down and areas of the sauce are turning golden.

    2. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. After the sauce has been roasting for about 10-12 minutes, boil the pasta according to pack instructions then drain. Tip the pasta into the tin and stir to coat in the sauce. Sprinkle over the parsley and a little grated cheese and serve.
