  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp mild chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, thickly sliced

Method

  1. Coat the Quorn pieces in the spices and stir until evenly coated.
  2. Heat oil in large pan, add the peppers and cook for 2 minutes over a high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onion is softened.
  3. Add the Quorn pieces with the spices to the pan and fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Reduce to a medium heat and add the milk and the penne pasta, stirring constantly to prevent sticking.

  6. Add the grated cheese and stir until melted.
  7. Remove from heat. Stir in the fresh coriander.
