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!

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.

Nice easy tea time treat - I added just a few slivers of ginger to put a bit of zing in the receipe.
