Penne with tomato, basil, olives and pecorino

Serves 4

  • 750 g pomodorino tomatoes

  • olive oil

  • sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • good-quality balsamic vinegar

  • 500 g penne

  • 200 g black olives, stoned and halved

  • 1 small bunch fresh basil, leaves picked

  • 1 chunk pecorino cheese, to serve

Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6.



Throw the tomatoes into a large roasting tin, drizzle them with olive oil, season with some salt and pepper and pop them in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Once they're roasted, squash the tomatoes with a fork to get the juices going and drizzle over some balsamic vinegar.



Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the pack instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta and add the roasted tomato sauce and the olives. Tear over most of the basil leaves and toss everything together. Season and serve with the reserved basil leaves scattered over and some freshly grated pecorino.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
