Method

  1. Put the pork in a bowl with 1 tsp oil, 1 tsp sage, 1 garlic clove and lots of black pepper. Mix well, put on a tray and scatter with the cheese.

  2. Heat the remaining 2 tsp oil in a pan and fry the carrot, celery and remaining garlic and sage for 5 mins, stirring frequently. Add the olives, tomato purée, bouillon and 200ml water, cover and cook for 5-8 mins or until the veg is tender.

  3. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti following pack instructions and heat the grill. Grill the pork for 6 mins, then leave to rest. Drain the spaghetti, reserving a little water, and toss into the veg with the tomatoes and parsley. Add the water to loosen, then serve with the pork.
