Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
Aluminum Foil


Cook the Pepper
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Drain the cheese and chop into 2cm chunks. Place in a bowl of cold water and leave to soak.
  • Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 2cm chunks, then pop onto a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then roast on the top shelf of the oven until tender and slightly charred, 20-25 mins.
Roast the Garlic
  • Meanwhile, pop the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil.
  • Drizzle in a little oil then scrunch to enclose.
  • Halfway through the pepper roasting time, pop the garlic parcel onto the same baking tray.
  • Roast until softened, 10-12 mins.
Fry the Cheese
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the pasta.
  • Meanwhile, remove the cheese from the water and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the cheese until golden brown all over, turning regularly, 4-5 mins.
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan and set aside.
Start the Sauce
  • Return the pan to medium heat.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, muscat and half the Italian herbs (double for 4p).
  • Mix in ½ tsp sugar and 75ml water (double both for 4p). Season with salt and pepper then bring to the boil.
  • Lower the heat and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 10-12 mins.
  • Once the garlic is roasted, allow to cool, then squeeze the flesh out of the skin. Mash with the back of a fork and stir into the sauce.
Make the Pasta
  • While the sauce simmers, add the rigatoni to the pot of boiling water then bring back to the boil.
  • Cook until softened, 12 mins.
  • Once the pepper has roasted, stir it through the sauce along with the fried cheese.
  • Add the spinach to the sauce, a handful at a time, stirring until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar. Add a splash of water to loosen the sauce if you feel it's too thick.
Finish and Serve
  • Once the pasta is cooked, drain in a colander and stir it through the sauce.
  • Divide the roasted pepper rigatoni between bowls.
