With just a few simple ingredients and a pinch of patience you'll soon have a delicious tomato sauce ready to go.

Caulifollower, Daniel, has been busy in the kitchen, knocking up an Ottolenghi-inspired slow cooked spicy tomato sauce to accompany his latest purchase of Sunny & Luna Cauliflower Tagliatelle!

A simple recipe packed with flavour and spice (umm, yes please), the only challenging part of this recipe is the hour wait while the sauce reduces. But stick with that gentle simmer and your patience will be rewarded with a velvety, flavourful sauce, improved only by a grating of parmesan... and a glass of wine!

A simple recipe packed with flavour and spice

Proof that dinner can be easy to prepare and delicious AND healthy (have we mentioned that our tagliatelle is made of 50% cauliflower and legumes?).

Tagliatelle with a Spicy Tomato Sauce


Serves 2

700g cherry tomatoes

2 cloves garlic

2 red chillis

4 tbsp olive oil


20g basil

1 pack Sunny & Luna Cauliflower Tagliatelle

Parmesan, to serve (optional)

Non è un problema

  • Want more veggies? Towards the end of cooking stir through some spinach or frozen peas.

  • If your tomatoes aren't very sweet add a pinch or two of caster sugar along with the salt.

  • Adjust the spice level accordingly with more or fewer chillis.


  1. Chop the tomatoes in half, thinly slice the garlic and finely chop the chillis.

  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and fry for 2 minutes.

  3. Add the tomatoes, chilli, 200ml water and season with salt. Stir to combine.

  4. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for an hour until the sauce has reduced and the tomatoes have broken down. Stir occasionally to prevent the bottom of the pan from sticking.

  5. After one hour, stir through the basil and leave on a low heat to keep warm.

  6. Bring a pan of salted water to a boil and add the tagliatelle. Cook for 2.5 minutes and then drain.

  7. Add the tagliatelle to the sauce and stir to combine.

  8. Serve with a grating of parmesan and a satisfied smile.
