Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Drain and set aside.

step 3

Stir in the tomatoes and tomato paste. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, stirring often, for 6-7 minutes or until the sauce reduces and thickens slightly.
