• 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 Italian sausages
  • 2.8l hot chicken stock
  • 400g penne pasta
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 celery sticks, thinly sliced
  • 140g green beans, cut into 5cm/2in lengths
  • handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the sausages until brown all over. Pour in the hot chicken stock and simmer with a lid on for 10 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Add the pasta to the pan, mix well and bring to the boil. Stir in the carrots and onions, cook for 5 mins, then add the celery and beans, and cook for a further 4 mins. Check that the pasta is cooked – if not, cook for a few minutes longer. Finally, stir in chopped parsley, season, and serve in large bowls.
