    About this recipe: This pasta sauce takes minutes to make and makes use of all the odds and ends in the fridge, great for those nights when you're home late from work and haven't the time to shop! Use whatever you have in the fridge - for example, use red pepper instead of green if that's what you have. It'll still taste fab!

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
