  • For the sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cumberland saugages, skin removed and mashed
  • 1 medium size red onion finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • chilli powder 1-2 tsp
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • small carton of double cream 100-150ml
  • pasta
  • 170-200grams of either fusilli


    1. de-skin saugages and mash with the back of a fork (can be lumpy) finely slice red onion
    2. place olive oil in frying pan on a medium heat add the saugage and fry lightly for 5 mins add the red onion to the saugage and carry on frying till onions are softened and saugage is cooked
    3. add the garlic to the pan stir then add chilli powder and stir
    4. add the can of tomatoes and bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 minutes
    5. cook your pasta according to instructions
    6. add the cream to your sauce and stir well simmer for 2 minutes
    7. add the sauce to your drained pasta and mix well
    8. You could add more chilli/garlic to your desired taste when cooking for children I tend to add more cream to the sauce
    9. I would say this recipe would feed 2 adults/1 adult and 2 children. recipe can be doubled but cooking time will be the same
