Sausage Pasta Recipe

Posted in: Main Meals

On today’s blog is my famous Sausage Pasta recipe. This is one of our family favourites – what tastier combo than some nice sausages, fresh tomato-based sauce and pasta? It’s another very versatile dish – you can add / swap the vegetable options – how about mushrooms or aubergines as alternatives? Here’s the recipe:


  • 300g (dry weight) pasta

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 courgette (200g), chopped

  • 1 pepper – any colour, chopped

  • 8 sausages – defrosted / fresh, and cut into chunks
  • 200g sweetcorn

  • 400g passata or tinned chopped tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or 2 fresh garlic cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons crème fraische

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


  1. In a large saucepan, bring the pasta to the boil and cook until al dente (just tender) – approx. 15 minutes

  2. In a second large saucepan, add the olive oil, onion, courgette, pepper and sausage chunks and heat gently, stirring frequently, until onions and sausage are light brown – approx. 10 minutes

  3. Add all remaining ingredients (except crème fraische – that goes in later), and leave to simmer with the lid on the pan for approx. 10 minutes
  4. Remove pan from the heat and add the crème fraische

  5. Once pasta is cooked, drain and add to the sausage / tomato mixture. Mix well

  6. Serve with a green salad and enjoy!
  7. If you want to convert to a pasta bake, simply pop the completed sausage pasta into a large overproof dish (I use a large rectangular pyrex dish), add a handful of grated mature cheddar, and pop until the grill for 5 minutes or so, until the cheese has turned gooey and golden.
