  • 500 g (17.5 oz) penne
  • 200 g Violife Original grated (divided in half) you can also buy the Original grated or the Original Block and grate it yourself
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) coconut cream
  • 300 g (10.5 oz) tomato sauce
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) olives
  • 4 spring onions (scallions) chopped
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • ground black pepper


  • Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  • Preheat oven to 200C / 400F / gas 6.
  • Add all ingredients (but only half the cheese) to a large bowl and thoroughly combine.
  • Lightly oil a baking tray and then add in the pasta mix.
  • Sprinkle on the remaining cheese, spray the top with some olive oil spray.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 mins. Remove, allow to cool for a couple of mins and serve.


  • Feel free to change up the seasoning to suit your taste. For example, use your favourite Italian Seasoning mix, or swap the oregano for fresh basil and thyme.
  • I cut up Violife Original Slices, but you can also buy the Violife Original Block and grate it yourself at home. Or to save time, pick up a bag of Violife Original Grated and just mix it right in.
  • Want more veggies? Chopped spinach, diced bell pepper or sautéed mushrooms are all great additions.
  • And for those who like a little heat, add in some red chilli flakes.
