  2. Stir in the chilli powder and tomatoes with the sausages, bring the sauce to the boil then turn the heat down and let it bubble for about 10 minutes while you cook the pasta.

  3. Drop the pasta into the pan of boiling water and cook according to the pack instructions. Drain the pasta, then tip it into the frying pan with the sausage sauce, mixing well to coat. Dish up immediately with crusty bread.

Made this last week. Used scissors to cut up sausages, as suggested by Sheppy back in 2008. Added some chopped up red and yellow peppers. My teenage son added Tabasco sauce to his dish, but I thought it was spicy enough with the chilli powder ;) We loved it. Will definitely make again.
