Takes ,
serves 4-6 people.

  1. You’ll need two pans on your hob, a deep saucepan for cooking the pasta and your biggest widest frying pan for the sausages.
  2. Start by boiling up the kettle and heating the saucepan with a little water in the bottom – adding hot boiling water to a prewarmed pan will save you time.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in the frying pan and grab the frozen onions and garlic from the freezer.
  4. Start cooking the pasta in the saucepan and brown the onions and garlic in the frying pan.
  5. Once the onions are browned, remove the sausage meat from their skins by making a slit down the length of the sausages. With your fingers, break the sausages into small, irregular pieces and place in the frying pan. The idea with this is that you make them small and quick to cook, so don’t spend ages on it, just get them in the pan pronto.
  6. Whack the heat up and stir, making sure the sausages are browning evenly.
  7. Once the sausage pieces are browned, add the tins of chopped toms, fennel seeds and season.
  8. Keep the heat up so that the chopped tomatoes sizzle and thicken.
  9. Once the pasta is cooked, combine the pasta and tomatoes in a generous serving dish.
  10. Serve up with cheese and chilli oil.
