Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based pan (preferably not non-stick) and add the sausages. Fry for about 8 mins until golden and cooked through. Tip in the garlic and fry for 1 min. Pour in the white wine and boil until it has reduced by half.
  2. Stir in the tomato purée and tomatoes, and season to taste. Simmer for 15 mins until the sauce is rich and thick.
  3. While the sauce cooks, boil the pasta according to pack instructions and drain. Stir in the basil if using, and cooked pasta into the sauce, then serve in bowls with grated or shaved Parmesan.

I cooked onion with some really good herby sausages and added a touch of chilli too to try and give this recipe some zing, but really it's only ok. Nice, but definitely nothing special.

I added some red onion, red chilli and fennel seeds to this & substituted the tinned toms for passata. I also stirred through some fresh spinach before serving to add a bit more vegetable content. Served it up to some colleagues before undertaking a midnight charity walk & it went down very well.

This was really easy to make, i added an onion and mushrooms to bulk it out and i used m&s chilli sausages and some fresh basil.I took the meat out of the skin and rolled it into meatballs. The sauce had a lovely flavour, enjoyed by everyone.

This would have been 5 stars but we felt that there was so much pasta that there was no sauce left over and as such the taste was diluted. Probably almost half the pasta would make this an awesome feed.

i used more sausages, and next time till do another can of tomatoes and add a little chili like suggested above. i didnt think there was enough tomato sauce for that amount of pasta. tasted nice though!

Made this with less pasta and one less sausage to feed two adults and one toddler. Very tasty and enjoyed by all.

Used leftover sausages from bbq to make this - was lovely and much faster knowing the sausages didn't need cooking

I don't drink and don't touch alcohol so just wondering if the wine has to be added to this meal?

This is such a great standby recipe. I made it on Friday night with Toulouse sausages and also added some mushrooms and chilli. I also added parsley instead of basil only because the supermarket was out of the latter! Can see this becoming a Friday night favourite - quick, easy, tasty and comforting!

Has anyone tried this with red wine instead of white?

This is easy to make when you come in from long day at work. I made twice the sauce and a couple more sausages, and added chili flakes - be a bit bland without I think.

I want to make this tonight but don't have any wine to add into the mix. Does anyone know an alternative for this??

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks.

Made this recipe for the children at a dinner party. They loved it, from the 1 year old to the 6 year old. Fantastically easy to prepare and so tasty. Used less of the wine than in the recipe (I know you boil off the alcohol but thought it was better as we were making it just for children)

Great simple dish. I added some hot paprika which gave the sauce some warmth. It's also nice with bacon instead of sausages.
