Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and return to pot.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and parsley for about 1 minute. Season with crushed chillies and black pepper. Stir into cooked pasta, along with remaining olive oil. Top with Parmesan.

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.
