  • 300 g Pasta
  • 4 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Medium Onion
  • 3 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 Medium Courgette
  • 2 Medium Aubergine
  • 30 g Parsley
  • 1 Teaspoon Crushed Chilli

Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

  • 9 Sun Dried Tomato
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 2 Teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 500 ml Vegetable Stock
  • 2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast


  • First cook the pasta. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and pour in the pasta. Cook for 10 - 12 minutes, or until the pasta is aldente. Drain and reserve.
  • Whilst your pasta is cooking prepare the ragu. Place all the sauce ingredients into a blender and whizz until smooth. Reserve.
  • Peel and dice the onion and garlic, then chop the aubergine and courgette into 2 cm pieces. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and toss in the garlic and crushed chilli. Fry a couple minutes until the crushed chilli begins to colour the oil. Add the onions and sweat until they are see-through.
  • Tip the diced aubergine and courgette into the pan, cover and sweat for 3 - 5 minutes, until the veggies begin to soften. Pour in the tomato sauce and stir to combine with the veggies. Bring the sauce to the boil, then turn down to a simmer and cover. Cook for 15 - 20 minutes until the vegetables have fully softened and the sauce is thick and luscious.
  • Once the ragu is ready, season to taste, then finely chop the parsley and fold into the sauce. Serve the ragu spooned over the pasta with more parsley and nutritional yeast sprinkled over the top.
