Method

  1. Cook the pasta according to pack instructions and drain. Drain, keeping a cupful of the liquid to add back if necessary once the sauce has been added
  2. Spray a small pan with olive oil and fry the garlic for 2 minutes, stirring to avoid it burning
  3. Add the passata along with the Pesto and pepper to taste
  4. Simmer for 5 – 8 minutes until reduced by approximately a quarter. Pour over the cooked pasta shells and add a little liquid if needed
  5. Stir in the basil and parsley, and sprinkle with the yeast flakes
