Still using our smooth conserve.
In boiling water cook your fresh tortellini with chunks of fresh carrots for 3 minutes. Remove the pasta from the boiling water and in to a bowl. Chop fresh parsley and some ham. Add on to the pasta with a table spoon or two of the tomato conserve. Done!

Baked Pollock & aubergine

Baked Pollock (fish) & aubergine:
Cut a thick steak of aubergine, dust with salt & pepper fresh garlic paste then drizzle with groundnut oil. Do the same for the fish and place both in the oven at the same time for 45 mins at 180c.
The aubergine will come out cooked but slightly chewy and the fish will be dry on the outside but moist inside.
Serve both with the chunky version of the conserve on the side.

Bon appétit!
