Ingredients

  • 6-8 pack pork sausages
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions , finely chopped
  • 3 celery sticks, diced
  • 2 carrots , diced
  • 3 garlic cloves , finely chopped
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1l chicken stock
  • 175g macaroni
  • 410g can cannellini beans , rinsed and drained
  • handful flat-leaf parsley , chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Snip the ends off the sausages and squeeze out the meat. Roll into rough walnut-sized meatballs. Heat half the oil in a large, wide pan and fry until browned, around 10 mins. Remove from pan and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Add the rest of the oil to the pan. Tip in the onions, celery and carrots and fry for 10 mins until soft. Add garlic and cook for 1 min more. Tip in the tomatoes and stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins.
