Hot and spicy tortellini
This sauce is quite hot so we recommend you test it before serving it to your children.

400g tortellini

1 tsp olive oil

6 large tomatoes, chopped

1 tbsp tomato paste

1 tsp Tabasco sauce

1 tsp basil leaves

100g grated cheese to garnish

Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. While the pasta is cooking you can make the sauce.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste. Allow to simmer gently for about 4 minutes before adding the Tabasco sauce. Season with salt and pepper.

To get a smooth consistency, you can spoon the tomatoes into a bowl and give it a quick going over with a hand held blender.

Toss the sauce and the pasta together.

Sprinkle the cheese on top and garnish with the basil before serving.
