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.

Made this last week. Used scissors to cut up sausages, as suggested by Sheppy back in 2008. Added some chopped up red and yellow peppers. My teenage son added Tabasco sauce to his dish, but I thought it was spicy enough with the chilli powder ;) We loved it. Will definitely make again.

My kids have loved this every time I've made it. I chop and change adding extra veg, courgette, peppers, sweetcorn etc. Guaranteed 4 clear plates :-)

Brilliant, made this quickly and added ginger, sweetcorn, lots of chilli powder and most importantly chocolate. Just joking. Very tasty :D

I cooked this to use up leftover cooked sausages. Also added some chopped courgette, and a teaspoon of marmite (I always add marmite to sauces!) and it was delicious!

Very Yummy indeed, I added more garlic, frozen peas, red pepper and a can of tomatoes as well as half a can of water. I then added curry powder and some home grown spinach leaves just scattered on the top of the mixed pasta.
I used the spicy chilli sausages instead of just pork sausages which made it more yummy.
Makes sausages go a long way for a family meal.

easy and simple just what I like. I took the suggestion of cutting the sausages with scissors instead of a knife, which worked fine. I wouldn't want to cook them first as finishing them in the sauce makes them lovely and juicy! the answer from my boys was "more, more!"

Excellent! I made this with what I had in the cupboard. Used smoked sausage and THREE times as much chilli. I only had lasagna sheets so I layered it up and added cheese sause and cheese on top, then cooked in oven. I now call it spicy sausage lasagna! Sooooo tasty and spicy. Will become a regular in my house
