3. once the tomatoes are soft enough, smush them with a fork so they go to a paste, and then add the red wine and chilli powder

3. leave this to cook down while you boil the pasta following the instructions on the packet

4. once the pasta is done, strain it and then transfer the sauce from the frying pan into the pasta pan, so you can mix the pasta and the sauce together
