Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium pan and fry the onion for 5 mins until softened and lightly golden. Stir in the garlic and cook for a further min. Mix in the tomatoes and sugar, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 mins. Add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and season to taste. This basic sauce can now be chilled or frozen, see recipe intro.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to pack instructions. Heat the grill to high. Mix together the cheese and breadcrumbs.
  3. Drain the pasta and stir into the sauce. Tip in the frankfurters and spoon into a heatproof dish. Scatter over the cheesy crumbs and grill for 3-5 mins or until bubbling hot and golden. Serve with a simple salad.

Very nice, when I do this again thou I would use two tins of tomatoes to give more of a sauce, enjoyed by all and I would do this again.

We used Kabanos instead of frankfurters and I also added a red pepper with the onion. I used a bit more pasta for two people - 200g instead of 100g - we tend to eat too much.

This was enjoyed by all the family and even approved even by my 3 year son! Used veggie sausages and tomato ketchup in place of the Worc sauce (as suggested by the 3 year old!) Will be making again.

I think they mean you can freeze the sauce but not the pasta, this sounds nice, think I will try it

I would possibly make it again, but not freeze it, that was not successful, the pasta ended up very dry, and uneatable (well, for any body else but my family!)

This was really good though I used Veggie sausages instead of frankfurters. I also used soy sauce instead of Worchester sauce as my sister has allergies
