  • To make the sauce, tip the tinned tomatoes into a jug with the peppers, tomato purée, garlic and 350ml/12fl oz water
  • Whizz to a smooth sauce with a stick blender
  • Heat a splash of oil in an oven-proof, wide-lidded saucepan pan or casserole dish
  • Fry the veggie balls in batches until golden-brown, transferring to a plate with a slotted spoon when done
  • Pour half of the sauce into the pan, then arrange the dried pasta on top
  • Spread the balls over the pasta, then pour over the remaining sauce
  • Bring to a simmer, then cover with a lid and transfer to the oven for 25 minutes
  • Give everything a gentle stir before serving
