Quick sausage bolognese
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
Pasta, sauce, and sausages, what could be a better combination? The sausage meat adds great flavour to a simple dish
- STEP 1
Heat a large, wide frying pan, then crumble in the sausage meat and fennel seeds (there’s no need to add any oil). Fry for a few mins until golden and the fat is released, stirring well to break up the meat. Add the mushrooms and fry for a few mins until beginning to soften. Stir in the wine now, if using, bubble for 1 min, then add the tomato sauce and heat through until bubbling.
- STEP 2
Meanwhile, boil the penne. When ready, drain and tip into the sauce. Mix well until completely coated, then divide between four plates, finishing with a little parmesan.
Using the meat from good-quality sausages is an easy way to get lots of flavour into mince dishes without having to add extra herbs, spices and seasoning.
