Instructions

Cook the Linguine
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the linguine.
  • When boiling, add the linguine to the water and bring back to the boil.
  • Cook until softened, 12 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat.
  • Drizzle with oil and stir through to prevent sticking.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Prep the Veg
2
  • Meanwhile, drain the grilling cheese then cut into slices (three per person). Add to a bowl of cold water.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). 
  • Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
  • Halve the chilli and discard the core and seeds. Finely chop.
Simmer the Sauce
3
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Add the pepper and onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins. 
  • Add the garlic and Cajun spice and fry until fragrant, 1 min more.
  • Pour in the passata, 100ml water and ¼ tsp sugar (double both for 4p). 
  • Simmer together for 3-5 mins.
Finishing Touches
4
  • Stir half the creme fraiche into the sauce.
  • Add the pasta and cook, stirring, until everything is warmed through, 1-2 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar.
  • Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
Fry the Grilling Cheese
5
  • While the sauce simmers, place a pan (preferably non-stick) over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Remove the cheese from the water and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Once the pan is hot, add the cheese slices and fry until golden, 2-3 mins each side.
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Divide hearty helpings of Cajun linguine between bowls.
  • Top with a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkling of chopped parsley.
  • Finish off with as much chopped chilli as you like (use less if you don't like spice).
