1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 carton vegan single cream (try and get an unsweetened one although the lemon will neutralize if you can’t)

1 onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, chopped 

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 heaped tbsp nori

1 tsp vegan bouillon

1 tsp dried basil

1tsp dried parsley

1 tsp dried oregano

250g pasta  (I used farfalle but use whatever you like)

Salt

Pepper

1 cup breadcrumbs

100g vegan cheese, grated

1 tbsp olive oil

Water for boiling 

Method

Preheat oven to 200°

Boil water and put pasta in to cook.

In another pan, fry the onion and garlic for around 5 mins until the onion starts to become transparent.

Add the tinned tomatoes and cream and stir in the jackfruit, nori, lemon juice and bouillon.

Add herbs, basil, parsley and oregano and salt and pepper to taste.

Cover with lid if your dish has an oven proof lid or tin foil, this helps the cheese melt.

Place in the oven for 30/45 mins.
