Pecan Pasta

Pecan Pasta

For this recipe you need rustic passata, or a good quality tin of tomatoes that have been roughly blitzed in the food processor. Regular passata is too smooth.

Use whatever beans you fancy: borlotti, canellini, black beans… anything! Healthy fats come in the form of pecan nuts in this oil free recipe.

Free from: soya 

Gluten, wheat free: use suitable pasta
