Heat tbsp of olive oil in a pan on a medium heat and add garlic. Fry for 1 min, but be careful not to burn the garlic.
Then, add chopped tomatoes, season to taste, paprika, and red wine vinegar, give it a stir and leave to simmer for 10 mins.
Transfer to a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth and set aside (you could leave this part of the process out if you wish).
Heat another tbsp of olive oil in a pan and add onion and peppers. Fry for 5 mins and add paprika.
Once your onions and peppers are soft, add pasta and tomato sauce. Mix that all together and add spinach, basil, a couple ladles of pasta water and smokey cheddar.
Give it all a stir, make sure your cheese has melted and you’re ready to serve.
