?Creamy Tomato & Pepper Rigatoni

By @happyskinkitchen


The sauce will make enough for 2 people


1 white onion – finely chopped

1 carrot – finely chopped

1 red bell pepper

2 garlic cloves – crushed

1/2 cup of cashews soaked in boiling water for 30 minutes

2 cups of tomato passata

Dash of water

A pinch of chilli flakes (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste

Drizzle of olive oil for cooking

Serve with: pasta of your choice – I have used rigatoni

Add a drizzle of oil to a frying pan. Once hot add in the chopped carrot and onion and cook for 5-8 minutes until the onion starts to caramelise. Add in the crushed garlic and cook for another minute. Add in the chopped pepper, cook for few more minutes. Add a dash of water if needed. Add in the tomato passata, turn down to a low heat and cook for a final 5 minutes. In the meantime cook the pasta according to the packet’s instructions. Drain the pasta but make sure to reserve a couple of table spoons of the cooking water. Transfer the pasta back to the pan and drizzle with some oil to prevent from sticking. Transfer the tomato sauce to a blender and add in the soaked cashews plus 2 tablespoons of the pasta cooking water. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour the sauce on top of the pasta and mix well.
