  4. Roughly chop the tomatoes and add them to the pan too.
  5. Add the brown sugar and bay leaves and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Cover and cook gently for about an hour.

Cooking Maize and Rice Pasta

  1. Three-quarter fill a large 2lt saucepan with water.
  2. Add a little salt and bring it to a rapid, rolling boil. 
  3. Add the pasta and stir to avoid it sticking.
  4. Boil uncovered for 7 minutes.
  5. After 5 minutes carefully remove a piece of pasta and cut it with the side of a fork. If the pasta resists, continue to boil and repeat the fork test every minute until it is ‘al dente’ and just cuts through the pasta.
  6. Drain the pasta into a colander over the sink.
