A friend of mine who has 4 kids passed on this recipe. It got 5 out of 5 with my family of 4, with clean plates all round. It made enough sauce and pasta for 2 extra lunch portions next day too.
Just be careful when frying the onions and apples not to have too high a heat.
- Sausages 1-3 per person depending on child or adult portions
- 1 onion, peeled, cut in half, then sliced
- 3 apples, peeled and chopped into chunks
- 1 tsp mixed herbs
- 2 cans chopped tomatoes
- 1 can butter beans
- 500g pasta of your choice, e.g. penne, farfalle, shells. All work well with the sauce.
- Gently fry sausages until browned in a large saucepan. You may need to add a little butter to prevent sticking and help browning.
- Remove browned sausages from the pan cover to keep warm. Gently fry onions and apples with a mixed herbs until softened, do not brown.
- Return sausages to the pan add tomatoes and butter beans. Bring to boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Cook pasta according to instructions on packet.
- To serve add your drained pasta to a warmed serving dish and pour sausages and sauce over.
Tips from Jill’s friend:
- I don’t slice the sausages, they tend to break up a little in cooking and it’s nice to have them bite site when you serve.
- It will hold and reheat well, so I find it useful if kids are eating different times due to activities I can just cook a fresh batch of pasta and reheat the sauce.
