Method

  1. Put a large pan of water on to boil. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the sausage chunks on a fairly high heat until they are golden brown all over. Now turn the heat down and add the onion and garlic, cooking them until they have softened.
  2. Stir in the chilli powder and tomatoes with the sausages, bring the sauce to the boil then turn the heat down and let it bubble for about 10 minutes while you cook the pasta.
  3. Drop the pasta into the pan of boiling water and cook according to the pack instructions. Drain the pasta, then tip it into the frying pan with the sausage sauce, mixing well to coat. Dish up immediately with crusty bread.

Simple, quick, tasty and nutritious, I added sweetcorn and mushrooms, with grated cheese over the top. My toddler loves it!

Such a good recipe but I used frankfurter sausages the second time as that was all I had and it tasted even better!!!

Made this a number of times now. A great recipe for days when time isn't on your side. I fry the sausages whole, then cut them into chunks as I find it much easier than cutting up raw sausages. I use mild chilli powder because no-one likes spicy food in this house. Made it once using hot chilli powder and it nearly blew our heads off. Our toddler loves this which is an added bonus when looking for family meals to try.

New family favourite, 4 yo suggested adding kidney beans as she loves and would recommend :)

I use scissors to cut the sausages, much easier! I add some minced chilli instead of the powder. This recipe freezes well - I'm not a meat eater and like to cook in bulk for the family.

Simple, but very tasty one. Used chicken sausage instead of pork, that was good too...

Not tasty at all, very bland. Would be better baked with cheese on top

this dish was seriously yummy!! But i altered it a bit, i got rid of the chili as i don't like spicy foods. I used a can of chopped tomatoes with garlic and herbs instead of the garlic cloves and threw in some garlic Italian seasoning. I also placed the pasta in a dish, sprinkled some cheese on and grilled it till the cheese had melted. This I felt added another dimension to the dish. 4 stars because i knew i wouldn't have liked the original. Next time i may add some bacon but not sure. This a dish you can defiantly play around with!!

Big hit with the family! I used dragon sausage though which is quite spicy in itself so it all added to the flavour! Gorgeous, a must try!

Really simple to cook and very tasty! Will def add some sweetcorn next time, and we found we had to add extra chilli powder, along with chilli flakes, but we like our food spicy. Will def be cooking this again including some of the excess veg from the garden.
