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 use red wine with this as I find it's a lot less acidic than using white wine. All the family enjoy this and it's very easy and quick to do.

The whole family loved this but I think it needs a few more sausages.

Pretty easy and cheap, I reckon I could even make this at a festival with some simplicity tweaks. However, really could be so much better!

Definite favourite! I like to add onion, chilli and mushrooms to bulk it up. I find a full pack of 6 sausages is better and that does enough for two with some left over for lunch the next day. My OH thinks it tastes even better the next day!

Added a few slices of pepperoni and just a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and paprika.. made with prawns the next week instead and was just as good!

Delicious simple supper. Used 4 sausages for two adults and one toddler - and next time will use 5-6 I think. Added one onion and served with lots of veg. Will definitely make again.

I really don't cook but have decided I need to learn. I cooked these last week for my husband and we both loved it! I used 350g of pasta for both of us and the amount of sauce in the recipe was good for 2 people - it would never stretch to 4. And we had 2 sausages each. It was quick, easy and tasted great - like a 'posh' pasta, not just a weeknight quick dinner. Very proud of myself but thanks to other comments where I picked up tips on qty's and alternatives etc.

Made this dish for supper. Really tasty. I used sainsburys taste the difference Cumberland sausage and added a few chilli flakes. So easy to make! Next time I will fry the sausage whole and cut up when cooked. This is because the chopped sausage pieces fell apart as they were cooking - still delicious though! The fresh basil works really well.

Excellent esp as I used Tesco finest Toulouse sausages n home roasted tomatoes that were in the freezer, excellent on what is a very cold night
