Tried and tested on a couple of friends and it went down a storm! Added an onion and some chestnut mushrooms and a little extra garlic and was glorious!

Four sausages for four people doesn't go anywhere in this dish. I used 8, could have used 10. I used a tin and half of chopped toms, which was just about right for the amount of pasta and meat. Very tasty, a winner with my lot :)

Just cooked this for lunch and I absolutely loved it.. Very easy and tastes very fresh, specially with the basil.. Could leave out the sausages next time for a lighter version!
