Method
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Place the balls in a medium roasting tin and bake for 18-20 minutes until cooked through and golden, adding the tomatoes for the last 5 minutes. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil and cook the pasta for 10-12 minutes until tender.

2. Meanwhile, combine the chives, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and capers in a bowl, and season with plenty of black pepper. Add 2 tbsp of the pasta cooking water and mix well.

3. Drain the pasta and return to the saucepan. Reserve some of the smaller basil leaves, pull the remainder from their stalks and tear into the pan. Stir in the balls and tomatoes. Turn the pasta onto serving plates. Drizzle with the dressing, sprinkle with the vegan block and serve scattered with the reserved basil leaves.
