Bucatini with Sausage Recipe
Spag Bol is So Yesterday
It doesn’t matter if you’re a Mum feeding her family or a student with the late night hungers, easy to prepare, hearty meals with quality ingredients that can be served in minutes are possible. This Bucatini with Sausage recipe is my variation of an Italian family table favourite that can be ready within 15 minutes.
The most important feature for such as Bucatini with Sausage is that I insist on quality, artisan-made sausages. I am naturally talking about the extensive range made by those talented butchers at William’s Farm Kitchen in Hornsea, East Yorkshire. And now you can buy on-line so you can order a selection and try this recipe in so many different ways, with subtle variations of flavours.
There you have a hearty, healthy meal for 2-3 people at around a fiver in a fraction of the time it would take to make Spaghetti Bolognese which is so yesterday, don’t you agree.
- 1 Pack of whichever sausage you choose
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1 Tin Tomatoes
- A torn handful of Basil or Flat Parsley (optional)
- Shave a handful of Parmesan Cheese
- A squirt of tomato Puree
- 75g / 3oz of Bucatini pasta per person
- (See alternatives below)
- Pinch of salt
- Now comes the heresy bit. Cut the skins off the sausages.
- You know how many you can eat but the important thing is that you are using craftsman-made
- sausages with the perfect balance of meat, seasoning and added ingredients so all the work to make them so very tasty has been done for you.
- Whilst you boil a pan of water with the pinch of salt and cook your pasta, heat the olive oil in a
- frying pan. I have chosen Bucatini (think of fat Spaghetti with a hole down the centre) but Spaghetti or Tagliatelli is fine.
- Crumble the sausages or chop up with a wooden spoon and cook it in the oil until crispy at the edges brown. About 8 minutes at a medium heat.
- Add the tomatoes to the frying pan, as much as you need for the number of portions, along with the tomato puree and simmer. You could add a palmful of frozen peas here.
- When the pasta bites cleanly drain it and add it to the frying pan. Bring back to a simmer for 1 min.
- Serve into shallow bowls and decorate with the Parmesan shavings and basil or parsley as an option. Maybe grind a little black pepper over it?
