DIRECTIONS

  • Grill both the chilli and red pepper under a very hot grilluntil the skin blackens and blisters. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Peel the chilli and pepper and remove the seeds. Roughly chop.
  • With a large pestle and mortar crush the garlic together with the toasted pine nuts.
  • One at a time, add the red pepper, chilli, basil, sundried tomato and tomato paste, squashing together until everything is roughly blended.
  • Stir in the grated Pecorino or Parmesan.
  • Stir in the oil, stirring until everything has become a paste, but still retains a little of it's own identity.
  • Add tabasco to taste.
