Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
olive oil, for cooking
1 onion , diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
150g sliced swiss brown mushrooms
4 italian-style pork sausages, about 400 g
2 tablespoons tomato paste
250ml chicken stock
125ml tomato purée
salt and freshly ground black pepper
400g pasta of your choice, such as orecchiette or penne
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons chopped basil
freshly grated parmesan cheese, to serve

Method

  1. Heat a large heavy-based saucepan over medium–high heat. Add a splash of oil and the onion and cook for 2–3 minutes, stirring often. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook for 2–3 minutes or until soft and fragrant, then remove the vegetables from the saucepan.
  2. Return the saucepan to the heat and add more oil if necessary. Squeeze the sausage meat out of the skins, and roll into 2 cm balls. Add to the pan and cook until golden brown. Return the vegetables to the pan, add the tomato paste and cook briefly. Add the stock, tomato purée, salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and allow to cook for 10–15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to the boil over high heat. Add a good pinch of salt. Add the pasta and stir until the water has returned to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and cook the pasta at a fast simmer for 8 minutes. Drain the pasta and toss with sauce. Add the herbs, check the seasoning and serve with the freshly grated parmesan.
