Ingredients

  • 4 spring onions
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 stick celery
  • 1-2 fresh red chillies
  • 6 reduced fat sausages make sure they are low syn- I used Tesco Healthy Living Cumberland
  • 1 heaped tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 500 g dried penne
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • Basil to garnish

Instructions

  • Roughly chop the spring onions, carrot and celery, then blitz in the food processor with the chillies (remove stalks).
  • Add the sausages (I chopped these roughly with scissors into the food processor), the fennel seeds and the oregano. Keep whizzing until it’s all well mixed-up.
  • Put the pasta on to cook, and then spray a large non-stick frying pan with Frylight and throw in the sausage mixture.
  • Keep breaking it up and stirring it to make sure it doesn’t stick to the pan- as there’s little fat in it it can stick a bit.
  • After the sausage mixture has cooked for about 8 minutes, crush in the garlic cloves, add the balsamic vinegar, and the tinned tomatoes.
  • Leave it bubbling while the pasta cooks. When the pasta is cooked through (save a little of the water), add it into the sausage sauce and season it.
  • If the sauce seems too dry then add a little of the pasta water.

Notes

Serve sprinkled with torn basil, with salad and a little grated parmesan if you fancy.
