  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions; drain.
  2. Pour olive oil in a large deep frying pan over high heat. Sauté onions and garlic until lightly browned. Reduce heat to medium high and add tomatoes, vinegar and chicken stock; simmer for about 8 minutes.
  3. Stir in chillies, black pepper, basil and cooked pasta, tossing thoroughly with sauce. Simmer for about 5 more minutes and serve topped with grated cheese.

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.
