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 very tasty, satisfying and simple to prepare. Next time I will skin the sausages and roll into balls for a smoother texture.

It was very difficult to chop up raw sausages and keep the skins on, on my second attempt I grilled them first and then chopped them up also if you want more sauce add another tin of tomatoes and less chilli powder as we found it too spicy! We love this recipe for a quick cheap mid week meal.
