Yields-23 Servings

A quick, tasty & very easy recipe for sausage ragu. This recipe is an ideal everyday easy weeknight supper. You can make a few sausages go a long way and it only take as long to make as it does to cook your pasta.

Sausage Ragù Recipe

 300 g Rigatoni, Penne pasta or Conchigile You want a
 1 tbsp Olive oil
 3 Fat good quality pork sausages, if using thin sausages you may want to use more
 2 Cloves garlic, peeled
 350 g Passata
 Sea salt flakes & Couirsly ground black pepper, to taste
To Serve
 Parmesan, to grate or shave o er finished dish
 A few leaves of fresh basil strewn over the final dish

Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water according to packet instructions.


Meanwhile, Prepare the ragù by heating the oil in a pan over a high heat. Squeeze the sausages out of their cases into the pan. Use a wooden spoon to break up and crumble the meat. Using a micro plain grate the garlic directly into the pan. Stir together the browned sausage and garlic constantly just for a moment to prevent the garlic burning before adding the passata sauce. Be careful as you do as it may splutter a little at first. Add salt and pepper. When the sauce begins to bubble, reduce the heat and allow to simmer until the pasta is ready.


Before draining the pasta reserve a little of the pasta cooking water. Tip the drained pasta into the sauce and stir to coat. Stir in a little of the reserved pasta cooking water to help the sauce cling to the pasta.


I like to take the pan of ragù to the table, strew with the basil leaves and let everyone dish out their own and add their own parmesan.
