Time: 30 minutes
I started making this because Lewis loved sausages and Hannah loved pasta so combining them meant everyone would eat dinner (in theory!) In reality it’s worked and is now a regular dish on our dinner menu. We normally throw in peppers for a bit of colour but you can add any other vegetables you have lying around like broccoli or spinach.
6 good quality sausages
2 cloves of garlic
1 400g can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp Italian or mixed herbs
Parmesan (or any cheese) for serving
Preheat the oven to 180C
Lay the sausages on a grill tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
Make the sauce
While the sausages are cooking, dice the onion and chop the pepper in to small chunks. Peel and crush the garlic.
Fry the onion in a little oil in a large pan. Leave it for a few minutes until softened. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
Add the pepper, tin of tomatoes and herbs. Stir everything together. Cover and leave to simmer for 5 minutes or until the sausages are ready.
Add the sausages and pasta
Remove the sausages from the oven and cut into small bite sized pieces. Add to the sauce.
Add the pasta to the sauce, stir so the pasta is coated.
Serve with a little grated cheese sprinkled on top.
