It only takes 2 ingredients to make this pici pasta, and with the Ben's spicy lentil stew sauce - this is a super quick, easy, plant based dish.


Add your flour into a large bowl or a clean surface and make a well in the centre. Add the warm water and oil into the well and incorporate into the flour using a fork until a rough dough forms.

Once a dough forms, knead the dough for 10 mins until it's smooth and elastic. Wrap the dough in cling film and allow to rest for 30 mins.

Roll the dough into a 1cm thick round and cut into strips. One at a time, roll out each strip until it resembles spaghetti. Place each piece of pici on a tray dusted with flour to stop them sticking.

Time to make the sauce, in a medium saucepan, add olive oil, followed by your diced onion and pepper, sauté until softened - 3-4 mins.

Then add your Ben’s spicy lentil stew pack, chopped tomatoes, salt and pepper and balsamic vinegar. Allow to simmer and reduce for 10 mins.

While the sauce reduces, boil water for your pasta. Season with salt and drop the pici in and cook for 2-3 mins then transfer to your sauce. Toss together and add in your basil leaves. Before serving, finish with vegan parmesan cheese.
