Here’s what you need to know:
- Simply use gluten-free pasta to make this a gluten-free meal.
- You can add more pasta if you have lots of hungry eaters at your dinner table. We’ve developed this recipe so it creates four medium portions.
- If you can’t find vegan parmesan, you substitute this for nutritional yeast which works really well simply being sprinkled over pasta.
- You can also avoid adding oil if you want to make this oil-free.
We just love the simplicity of this pasta.
Roasting the vegetables and the sauce – instead of cooking it in a pan – makes it that little bit easier.
You can just throw everything in the oven and put your feet up while it cooks.
The tomatoes take on a gorgeous sweet flavour, which balances perfectly with the earthiness from the olives.
