Very quick & easy to throw together. I made my own tomato sauce with tomato paste & water & added about a tsp of sun-dried tomato tapenade to boost the flavour. We didn't have ziti, so i used wholegrain penne. Next time i will add some oregano & maybe a touch of chili (just coz i love it!) We will definitely be making this again.
