Sun-Dried Tomato and Mascarpone Rigatoni
Super easy and super simple. The perfect pasta that only takes 15 minutes to make.
200g of dried rigatoni
2 cloves of garlic
80g of sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
3 tbsp of tomato puree
2 tsp of dried chilli flakes
120g of mascarpone cheese
Parmesan to serve
Start by boiling the pasta in salted boiling water according to the instructions on the packet.
In a frying pan, heat up a splash of oil over a medium heat. Once hot, add the garlic, chopped sun-dried tomatoes and chilli flakes.
Fry this off for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Add the tomato puree and fry for a further minute.
Add the mascarpone and a large splash of pasta water. Mix well over the heat, adding a little more pasta water if the sauce looks a little thick.
Darin the rigatoni once cooked and add into the pan with the sauce. Mix well over the heat then divide between two bowls.
Finish with parmesan and a basil leaf to garnish.
