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.

this is a really easy dish to make that tastes delicious and is very filling. I serve it with brocolli and crusty bread.

I made this dish with vegetarian 'pork style and leek' sausages. I part cooked them in the oven first before chopping them up and adding to the pan. I also added peppers and sweetcorn. Completely forgot to add the chilli powder but it was still very tasty. Would definitely make this dish again. Highly recommended as an easy, mid week meal.

so easy, cheap and tasty! will definately make again, sauasgaes are one of my boyfriends favourite foods so it was a nice change and completely different to sausage and mash or sausage on toast! i added mushrooms for extra veg

Very good mid-week meal. Easy and cheap! I followed recipe entirely and was happy, next time I will add more veg though as sweetcorn sounds like a good idea. Cut sausages with scissors which was no problem - thanks Sheppy!

Very quick and easy to make - the kids loved it too. Added some harissa sauce just to give it the extra kick....and sweetcorn.

Good dish but i added some chilli flakes instead of the chilli powder, a red & green pepper, a tsp of dried tomato paste and used a red onion indeed for a deeper lavour.... i also grilled the sausages before adding to the sauce

We had this for dinner tonight and I modified it slightly. I added in some oregano and basil, to give it that italian feel. It was really quick and easy to make and will definately become a regualr meal in our household. However I would leave out the chilli powder next time, I only used 1/2 a tsp and it was too much.

Possibly the nicest sausage pasta I have ever made! Very easy to make and my four year old loved it!

truly brillant for students! I'm a student and I just love this recipe. I sometime substitute sausage with tinned hotdogs when that's all I've got and its much easier to slice too. Also good with mixed vegies (when I cook for my veggie flat mate!)

I made this for my family a couple of weeks ago and my 8 year old daughter absolutely loved it and has asked for it again. Looks like this will be a Friday night favourite as it is so easy to make. I also made an addition to the receipe - nce everything was cooked and all mixed together, I put it in an oven proof dish, grated cheese over the top and popped it under a preheated grill until all the cheese bubbling. To me this set the dish off perfectly.

I used to make something like this when the children were small. I'd forgotten all about it. Will certainly make again.

I make a recipe similar to this, but instead of adding pasta i serve the sauce over rice, i also add peppers and other veg to the pan. This is my kids favourite meal. Also if you dont like chilli this is delish with paprika.

I use scissors to cut up the sausages as it's quicker than a knife and you keep the skins on with ease!

Was quick & easy. I also grill the sausages first as easier to cut. Also added a tin of sweetcorn, was yummy!
