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 only had two sausages left in the fridge, but still really enjoyed this one. I will be trying this one again!

I made this a few days ago it was very tasty i added chorizo and salarmi instead of sausage for spanish tast. I also added one and a half tins of chopped tomatos rather than just the one as there was a lot of pasta this made it the suace go a lot further as i think the pasta would of been a bit dry otherwise. I also added a red chilli as i like a bit of heat but i feel it would be nice with or with out it.

Fabulous dish. We used 6 sweet chilli sausages and I also added some blanched broccoli and mushrooms.

Quick and easy to make and very tasty.

I will definitely cook this again.

Didnt have any wine so a bottle of speckled hen went in... blooming tasty!! :)

Agree with the comment about freezing before the pasta goes in...

Quick and easy, 10/10 (other beers may have affected the desicion)

We all enjoyed this, I agree that the pasta is too much, cooked less than stated and didn't use all of it. For three of us cooked 6 sausages. It needs something else but not sure what yet, will experiment next time. To sum it up a lovely mid week supper that needs tweaking to your own personal preference.

This is a really easy and tasty supper dish. I am going to try it with some chilli flakes next time. Everyone that has tried it has loved it.

A very versatile and tasty dish which is very easy to make. I made this using bramley apple sausages which made the sauce slightly sweeter. By adding basil it fills the dish with flavour. Definately making this again!!

I added mushrooms cut into chunks and some red pepper pesto and it was really yummy. Everybody wanted seconds so will have to increase the recipe next time.

Lovely with lots of added chilli - but agree recipe is for 2 (one hungry, one watching their weight) - would make again

Fast to make and filled a few hungry tums. Will make again, kids loved it.

Have made this several times. Agree with Alex that sausages with a good flavour are needed but, nonetheless, a good, quick and easy midweek meal.
