I made this last week as a replacement for spaghetti bolognese, it’s dead quick, easy and extremely tasty.

Ingredients |  Serves 4

1 medium onion

2 cloves of garlic

350g good quality sausage meat

1 red pepper

200g mushrooms

2tbsp sundried tomato paste

1 tin of chopped tomatoes

400g pasta (I used rigatoni)

handful of fresh basil leaves

  1. Finely chop the onion and garlic. In a pan heat up a glug of olive oil and sauté the onion and garlic.
  2. Add in the sausage meat and bash it with your spoon so that it resembles mince meat.
  3. Chop up the pepper and mushrooms into small pieces and once the sausage meat has cooked add these to the pan.
  4. Cook for about 10 minutes on a medium heat.
  5. Then add the sundried tomato paste and tinned tomatoes and stir.
  6. Leave to simmer for about 10 minutes and in the mean time cook the pasta.
  7. Once the pasta has cooked, drain from the water then add to the tomato sauce and stir well.
  8. Serve immediately with freshly chopped basil.
