A really tasty dish that’s quick to prepare when you come home from work, and suitably impressive to serve to a friend on a Thursday night with a bottle of wine…
6 sicilian pork sausages (use Toulouse if you can’t find sicilian)
2 tablespoons olive oil
tablespoon fennel seeds
A good squirt of tomato puree
150g frozen soya beans or peas
200ml white wine
50g parmesan cheese
Tagliatelle (enough for 4)
Large handful finely chopped basil
– serves 4-
1. pop your pasta on to boil whilst de-skinning your sausages and chopping them into bitesize chunks.
2. Heat the oil in a pan and add the fennel seeds. Throw in the sausage pieces and fry until nice and golden. Add the tomato puree and half of the wine and simmer until the liquid has almost dissapeared
3. Add in the rest of the wine and soya beans and leave to cook for a few minutes until the soya beans are soft.
4. Drain the pasta and then stir into the sausage mixture, add the basil and parmesan, mix well and then serve.
