    Conchiglioni Pasta with Creamy Roasted Tomato and Garlic Sauce

    A no prep supper dish for the whole family using our new shell-shaped pasta. Simply roast the sweet cherry tomatoes and garlic, in the oven, cook the pasta and stir in the cream - that's it!

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    • 500g pack cherry tomatoes
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, finely sliced lengthways
    • 500g pack Waitrose Conchiglioni Pasta (dried)
    • 2 tbsp half fat creme fraiche
    • 20g pack fresh basil

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4. Place the cherry tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and seasoning in a medium sized shallow ovenproof dish and mix well to coat everything in oil. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring once during cooking, until the tomatoes are soft but still holding their shape.
    2. Cook the pasta according to pack instructions 15 minutes before the tomatoes are ready. Drain the pasta thoroughly.
    3. Tip the cooked pasta into the roasting tin. Add the creme fraiche and toss everything together and season to taste.
    4. Roughly shred the basil by removing the leaves and rolling them up together in small bundles into cigar shapes, then slice very thinly. Stir into the pasta and serve immediately with a fresh watercress salad and some Ciabatta bread.
    5. Cook's Tips: Complete the recipe to the end of step 2 and allow the sauce to cool. Reheat when needed, either in the oven or in a microwave.
    6. Seasoning the tomatoes before they start cooking draws out more moisture and therefore concentrates their flavour, giving a far more tasty result.
