Ingredients

  • 1/2 quantity of really useful roasted red pepper sauce
  • 1 cup 250ml heavy whipping cream
  • 1 pound 450g tagliatelle or other long noodle
  • 1/2 bunch swiss chard or 2 cups of spinach or kale.
  • 1/4 cup toasted almonds

Instructions

  • Make the roasted red pepper sauce according to the recipe.
  • In a small dry frying pan toast the almonds until they are just starting to brown and smell fragrant. Place them in a small bowl and set aside until you’re ready to serve.
  • In the same pan, heat the tablespoon of olive oil and toss with the swiss chard. Heat until the chard is just wilted and set aside.
  • Put half the amount of pepper sauce in a skillet or deep frying pan and add the cream. Whisk well and bring to the boil.
  • Cook the pasta according to the package directions and drain. Toss with the sauce to ensure all the pasta is well coated. Place the pasta in a serving bowl and top with the wilted greens and the toasted almonds.
