Recipe: Chunky Sausage Pasta

3 Feb

Easypeasy telly dinner

This is a scrummy dinner and the perfect snackette following a tough day in the office, a pounding hangover or when you only have marginally more energy than it would take to order in a pizza.

To buy:

*1 tbsp olive oil   *1 pack of squiggly pig sausages   *3 garlic cloves chunky chopped   *200ml white wine (nothing too shabby)   *1tbsp sundried tomato paste   *400g tin of chopped tomatoes   *200g pasta   *pinch of chilli   *salt and pepper   *stacks of cheese

To make:

1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based pan and add the sausages. Fry for about 8 mins until golden and cooked through.

2. Tip in the garlic and fry for 1 min.

3. Pour in the white wine and boil until it has reduced by half.

4. Stir in the tomato purée and tomatoes, a pinch of chilli and season to your tastes. Simmer for 15 mins until the sauce is rich and gloopy.

5.  Meanwhile boil your pasta (I cook mine with a knob of butter and plenty of salt), when cooked throw it in a bowl, add the sauce and sausages and top with mountains of cheese.

This happily feeds two empty bellies – with room for a spot of cake for puds maybe – and literally takes about 20 minutes. It is hangover-tested and I can vouch that even with a stonker it’s simple and tasty.
