Prep Time: 25 mins
I wasn’t really sure what I created when I made this (and I’m still not), but it’s pretty goddam delicious. It was one of those times when you go to the supermarket hoping to be inspired, and then you’re just… not. Perhaps I should no longer be surprised by the lack of inspiration jumping from the anodyne aisles of my nearest Sainsbury’s local, but just in case you have found yourself in a similar position then this should help.
I was keen to get using my sprialiser, (as it had been a while) so that was my starting point, and as it looks kinda like spaghetti I thought I’d try passata as a base for the sauce. From there I added a handful of old favourite ingredients that work soooo well in tomato sauces and finally, I wanted it to be extra filling so I added some brown rice to bulk it out and bring a nutty earthiness to the dish.
I don’t usually share my first time recipe experiments, but this one is very special so I had to…I hope you enjoy it too.
