2 cloves garlic, crushed

4 chillies, deseeded and finely chopped

500 g chopped plum tomatoes

50 ml white wine

1 – 2 Tbsp basil, chopped

1 C (250 ml) Parmesan cheese, finely grated

Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and chilli and cook gently, without burning.

Add the tomato and white wine and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Adjust the seasoning.

Fill a large saucepan with salted water and bring to the boil. Add the penne or home-made garganelli and cook until al dente.

When cooked, strain – do not rinse – and add to the sauce.
