  1. Boil the pasta for 2 mins until just cooked. Meanwhile, heat the oil in the frying pan and sizzle the tomatoes until they start to blister.

  2. When pasta is cooked, drain it quickly, reserving some cooking water. Put the tomatoes back on a high heat. Tip in the pasta, parsley, a splash of cooking water and most of the parmesan. Bubble everything together, season with black pepper and salt if you want. Serve with remaining parmesan.

Nice, tasty and fast! I added some chopped chorizo to the mix and it came out nice and spicy. A great dish for when you're in a hurry.

This recipy is lovely! I've made this for five of my classmates last week and they absolutely loved it. I personally don't like parsley, so I left it out and put some extra veg in: sugarsnaps (boilt for 2 minutes), courgette (just popped it in raw when tipping the pasta in with the tomatoes) and some thinly sliced carrot. Quick, easy and it looks stunning with all the bright colours! Ineke
