Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 x fiid Italian Sundried Tomato Lentil Ragu
  • 250g Pasta
  • 4 x large Tomatoes
  • 6 x Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 1 x Garlic Clove, crushed
  • 1tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 handful of fresh Basil, chopped
  • 1 handful of Rocket Leaves, chopped
  • Salt & Pepper

Method 

  1. Boil water to cook the pasta. We used Rigatoni but you can use whatever is in the pantry. (*Shane's tip: Try using a nice large pasta shape that has somewhere to hide the sauce inside 😍)
  2. Once the water is boiled, cook the pasta according the instructions.
  3. In a separate pan, add your fiid Italian Sundried Tomato & Lentil
    Ragu along with the tomato puree, crushed garlic clove. Bring to a simmer before removing from the heat
  4. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and add it to the ragu, stirring to combine and fully coat the pasta with the sauce
  5. Allow to cool and refrigerate until it is ready to serve
  6. Prepare the tomatoes (you can use whatever tomatoes you can find but it's nice to have a mix of heirloom and cherry tomatoes if possible)
  7. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and cut up the heirloom into chunks. Add the tomatoes to the pasta along with the chopped basil and rocket leaves
  8. Add the olive oil & balsamic vinegar, stirring to combine
  9. Top with freshly chopped basil and serve
  10. And there you have it - your "just something I threw together" salad 😜
