Spicy Italian sausage spaghetti

Italian sausage spaghetti

God bless the Italians. They gave us pasta and they gave us spicy sausage. I give you, in return, a rather incredible spicy Italian sausage spaghetti. This dish wouldn’t look out of place on the dinner table in an episode of The Sopranos.   Uno non può pensare bene, amare bene, dormire bene, se non ha mangiato bene.

Ingredients

4 spicy Italian sausages, removed from casing
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
3 tbsps tomato puree
150ml water
1 tbsp sugar
100ml single cream
1 lb spaghetti pasta
Salt
Pepper
Grated parmesan cheese
Handful chopped coriander to serve

Method

Take the Italian sausage meat out of the sausage casings. Break up into pieces and brown the sausage meat in a large frying pan on medium high or high heat with a little olive oil. Once brown add in the onions and garlic and cook until the onions are translucent. Add in the sugar, chilli and tomato puree. Add in the water and cream and simmer gently for 10 minutes, adding a tiny bit more water if needed.

Cook the spaghetti according to pack instructions, drain then toss through meat sauce. Serve up on a plate with lashings of grated parmesan cheese and chopped coriander. Mamma mia!

Serves 2
