Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
