You’re just going to love this recipe! Lazy one pan tomato pasta is one of my favourite things to cook. It’s easy to prepare, quick to cook and tastes just delicious.

Cirio sent over some of their delicious tomato products for me to have a play with.

I must admit it is the brand I usually buy, their tinned tomatoes always without fail are thick, flavoursome and sweet tasting, practically a sauce in themselves before I even start to add extra ingredients.

My kids like to add toppings to this pasta dish, so I put out little bowls of grated parmesan cheese, mini mozzarella balls, shredded ham, fresh basil and black olives for them to help themselves to.
