Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 sausages
  • 2 cloves garlic - crushed
  • 1 brown onion - grated
  • 1 zuchhini - grated
  • 400 g tin of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp dried mixed herbs
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 200 g of pasta - dry

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta as per the packet instructions.
  • In the meantime, add the olive oil to the frying pan and heat over a medium. Cut the ends of the sausages and squeeze out the meat (directly into the frying pan)to form little meatballs.
  • Add the grated onion and crushed garlic and cook for 3 minutes or until the onion begins to turn translucent.
  • Add the grated zucchini and cook for a further 3 minutes - tossing the sausage 'meatballs' regularly to ensure they are brown on each side.
  • Reduce the heat slightly and add the crushed tomatoes, mixed herbs and salt and pepper before cooking for a further 3 - 4 minutes or until the sausage meatballs are cooked through.
  • Use a pair of tongs to carefully transfer the cooked pasta directly into the frying pan and gently toss it through the tomato and sausage mixture to coat.
  • Divide between four bowls and serve with a little grated parmesan cheese.
