  • 125g feta cheese, crumbled
  • ¼ cup torn, fresh flat-leaf parsley

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes, until softened, then add garlic and cook for another minute. Add tomato paste, cook for 1 minute, then add white wine and simmer until reduced by half. Add chopped tomatoes, granulated sugar and chilli flakes, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and scatter with torn parsley. Serve immediately with sliced baguette.
