Method

  1. Heat a large, wide frying pan, then crumble in the sausage meat and fennel seeds (there’s no need to add any oil). Fry for a few mins until golden and the fat is released, stirring well to break up the meat. Add the mushrooms and fry for a few mins until beginning to soften. Stir in the wine now, if using, bubble for 1 min, then add the tomato sauce and heat through until bubbling.

  2. Meanwhile, boil the penne. When ready, drain and tip into the sauce. Mix well until completely coated, then divide between four plates, finishing with a little Parmesan.

This was okay, but I don't think the Lloyd Grossman range of pasta sauces have enough flavour.

Hey, this looks great!
A suggestions from those of us who are not located in the UK, it would be great to have the weight of the sausages as In france for example, we have numerous different types and sizes of sausages.
In the meantime, I'll extimate and give this a go!

This is a really quick and tasty supper, ideal for after work. I only had a small jar of Loyd Grosman sauce, so added a tin of chopped tomatoes, with 1/2 tsp chilli powder; and some frozen peas to add more veg. Empty dishes all round!
