Spicy tomato sauce in the microwave


  • Cook the pasta in lightly salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain well.
  • When the pasta is almost ready, put the tomatoes, onion, capsicum, garlic, soy, chilli paste, seasonings, parsley and 2 tbsp oil in a large bowl. Stir well, cover with plastic wrap and cook in the microwave on high for about 4 mins until soft. Then strain the sauce, puree and taste for seasoning.
  • Heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan and fry the bacon, continually stirring. Then add the tomato sauce with the pasta. Stir to coat well and briefly cook.
  • Serve the pasta in individual bowls with grated parmesan sprinkled on top.
