Fried tagliatelle with chickpeas and smokey tomatoes

Collaboration with Woodhill Kitchen

This recipe by @noorishbynoor is a game-changer. Frying the tagliatelle nests adds some amazing textures to the dish and you’re gonna want to pour the smokey tomato oil over everything.


  • 250g cherry tomatoes

  • Olive oil

  • 2.5 tsp chipotle chilli flakes

  • 1.5 tsp sweet paprika

  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • Tagliatelle nests for 4 people

  • 2 cans chickpeas

  • 1L water

  • 1/2 tsp bicarb

  • 1.5 tsp salt

  • 2 minced garlic cloves

  • Lemon

  • Smokey tomato oil

  • Parsley

  • Lemon slices


Cook 250g cherry tomatoes in a frying pan for 4-5 mins until charred all over but still retaining their shape. Set aside to cook for 5 then add 120ml olive oil, 2.5 tsp chipotle chilli flakes, 1.5 tsp sweet paprika, 1 tbsp tomato paste and 1/2 tsp sea salt. Bubble away on a low heat for 15 mins stirring every now and again. Pour into a bowl to infuse.

Add 2 tbsp olive oil to a large sauté pan with high sides. Fry tagliatelle nests for 4 people for a couple of mins each side until golden then set aside and rinse the pan out. Add 2 cans chickpeas to the pan with 1L water and 1/2 tsp bicarb and bring to a simmer for 5-10 mins until soft but retaining their shape. Add in 1.5 tsp salt and 2 minced garlic cloves and mix. Nestle the tagliatelle nests and cook with a lid on the pan for 5-10 mins until the pasta is cooked through and most of the water is absorbed. To finish squeeze over a lemon, top with the smokey tomato oil and sprinkle with lots of parsley. Serve with lemon slices 🍋

@woodhillkichen began in June 2020 after deciding I could not take one more picture of my food to sit on my camera roll unseen by the world. Be it home-cooked or eating out, there’s nothing I find more satisfying than good food and getting the perfect pic!

Despite still working through lockdown, quieter weekends gave me the chance to experiment with new recipes and spend a little more time in the @woodhillkichen.

Proving vegetables don’t need to be boring and that cake is ALWAYS a good idea is my goal and I hope to encourage people to love their leftovers, shop small and support local businesses!
