Spicy Sausage Pasta

My search for a good sausage & pasta recipe goes on. This recipe cooks the sausage first, less messy and a bit more natural than taking the skins off.


  • 6 lean pork sausages
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 400g canned tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp chili flakes (less if you’re wimpish)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Enough pasta for 2 people (penne or fusili would be good)


  1. Fry the sausages in half of the olive oil until lightly browned on all sides. Remove from the pan and slice into chunks.
  2. Slowly fry the onion and garlic in the rest of the olive oil until it begins to colour.
  3. Add the tomatoes, cooked sausages, chili flakes and oregano and simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet and add to the sauce.
  5. Add some grated parmesan if you like.

Serves 2.
