Sausage Pasta

Published Friday, 10 January, 2014 by Amy Keeton

Easy sausage and tomato pasta with veg



  • 2 sausages
  • pasta
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 1 pepper (cut into strips)
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • mushrooms (sliced)
  • mixed herbs
  • passata
  • optional: 1 clove of garlic (finely chopped)
  • chilli powder
  • any other veg you fancy - e.G. Sweetcorn or courgette.


Boil a pan of water (enough to cover however much pasta you want - don't use too much pasta otherwise there'll not be enough sauce) and cook your pasta while you prepare everything else.

cut the sausages into chunks (not too big) and fry them until browned.

add the onion and peppers (plus garlic and any other veg, if you're using it) to the pan and cook until they are starting to soften.

pour in the tin of chopped tomatoes and leave to cook for 5 minutes.

add your mushrooms. Season to taste with mixed herbs (and chilli, if you're using it).

drain your pasta and mix your it with your sauce. If your sauce isn't covering all of the pasta, (or if you'd like it a bit more tomatoey) add some passata until there's enough.

leave it for a few minutes, until your extra passata heats up, then serve!
