  • 400g penne
  • 1 tbsp olive or sunflower oil
    Sunflower oil

    Sunflower oil

    A variety of oils can be used for baking. Sunflower is the one we use most often at Good Food as…

  • 454g pack good-quality sausage, cut into chunky pieces
  • 250g chunky chestnut mushroom, halved
  • 500g pack cherry tomato
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, leaves roughly chopped



    Rosemary's intense, fragrant aroma has traditionally been paired with lamb, chicken and game…

  • handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped


  1. Cook pasta according to pack instructions. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, then fry the sausages and mushrooms for 5 mins until golden. Add the tomatoes and cook for about another 3 mins on a high heat until the tomatoes pop and start to form a sauce. Season to taste, then add the herbs and drained pasta and stir well.

I am not a vegetarian but I did try this for a BBQ for a friend who is veggie, and made it with quorn type sausages which she said were lovely overall. We have this dish quite a lot, it's high in carbs but so moreish. A guilty pleasure

This is a really nice simple recipe and good comfort food. I use chipolata sausages. Usually I'll make an extra portion which I can heat up later in the week when I don't have time to cook. I normally add some rucola at the end and I stir through a hand of grated parmesan to make it a little bit creamy

i added a tin of chopped tomatoes, garlic and chillies to it, was lovely, don't think i'll use rosemary next time, was a bit over powering with it

As stated in previous comments, found it best to cook the sausages first and this makes it easier to cut into pieces. A hit with all the family including son who normally turns his nose up at sausages!

Really really delicious!! I made it vegetarian by using Quorn sausages instead, I also added chopped tomatoes and creme fraiche for the extra sauce as suggested - LOVELY!! I also cooked the sausages in sweet chili sauce, made a delicious flavour but it spits at first! x

As everyone is saying, a filling quick meal, easy to prepare. I used Frantic Flapjack's idea (19 Nov 08) and also added a dash of worcester sauce. Will certainly make this again.

This was an instant hit, especially with my 3 year old son who normally hates trying anything new. I'm cooking it for the second time tonight - so quick, easy and tasty. I added a can of chopped tomatos to give it some sauce and even managed to sneak in some home grown veggies.

It's delicious. Especially if you fry some onions first. very flavoursome.

really nice quick and easy dish will make again but will take frantic flapjacks advice and add chopped tomatoes and garlic as it was missing a little something

I love this recipe, my boyfriend thinks it's great & so easy to make. I've even had people asking me for it to make at home.

I put a tin of chopped tomatoes in a baking tin with a crushed garlic clove and the chopped rosemary and baked on high for 20 mins for a quick concentrated sauce and then added it to the mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. It was very good and added a little extra sauce.

I made this last night for me and my fella, it was absolutely lovely and soooo easy to make. I halved all the ingredients as i was cookin it for two. My fella isnt too keen on Rosemary so i only added half a stalk. I would definitely make this again, and will keep it in my binder for easy access.x
