  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional, I use water instead)

  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 red chilli pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • Nutritional yeast, to serve

Bring the mixture to a boil then turn the heat down to medium and cook for around 5 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by half.

In the meantime, cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packet. Once cooked, drain the spaghetti but reserve some of the cooking water. Add the spaghetti to the reduced sauce and toss gently but thoroughly until the sauce evenly coats the spaghetti. Add some of the cooking water if necessary to loosen the sauce. Stir in the tomatoes and parsley leaves.

Serve the spaghetti with extra parsley and nutritional yeast.
