To prepare caprese pasta salad bring a large pan of salted water to a boil and cook the penne according to packet instructions.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan (skillet) and cook the onions over a fairly high heat until they have softened and started to caramelise.
Add the garlic and chilli pepper, cook for 2 minutes then add the tomatoes, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce has reduced and thickened. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
