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.

Delicious! I used spicy pork and fennel sausages. I also added quite a bit of pepper, and some tomato soup to the pasta sauce.

Adapted this based on what I had - 400g pasta, lincolnshire sausages and dry pinot wine. Unbelievably tasty. Will definately make this again.
