This spicy vegetarian sauce is best served with pasta (penne is ideal) and some grated Parmesan or Italian-style hard cheese or Gruyère. Keep cans of chopped tomatoes and chickpeas on hand to make it often!
Sun-dried tomato paste has a richer flavour than ordinary tomato purée because it also contains chillies, oregano, garlic and capers. It's particularly useful when you are cooking in a hurry and don't have time to add many flavourings.
Something else. Went back for seconds! Cant believe I'm the only one who reviews this dish. Since finding it in 2009, I must've made it once a fortnight. Even my meat loving hubbie loves it. Go-on, don't let me be the only one..... ....Six years later, Im still making this dish as a 'what shall we have tonight', you know, when time is short. Thank-you for posting it. - 04 Nov 2009
