Red Pepper Pasta
- 110 ml vegetable oil
- 25 g flour
- 2 tsps yeast extract
- 60 g sundried tomatoes
- 130 g roasted red peppers roasted, in a jar
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 400 g pasta
- First, put your pasta on to boil.
- Snipped the sun dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers into very thin slivers with your kitchen scissors
- Using the marmite / yeast extract and a pint / 500ml boiling water, make a jug of stock
- Make a roux with the oil and flour. Add the hot stock in about 4 goes.
- Between each addition of stock stir the mixture until all the liquid incorporates into the flour and oil. (If you lift the pan off the heat and beat hard with a wooden spoon after the liquid is incorporated your sauce will be beautifully glossy).
- By the time all the liquid is added you should have a sauce which will coat the back of a spoon. If not add more stock. Stir in the mustard, oregano, garlic, red peppers and sundried tomatoes in slivers.
- Drain pasta. Stir sauce into cooked pasta.
