sausage & beans (with benefits) pasta

bace beans with benefits & sausage pasta dish

“Pasta and beans is a sublime combination and the beans provide a great source of fibre. My children adore this dish and will often ask for it. It’s quick to prepare and the whole family enjoy it. Try chorizo sausage for a change.”

SERVES: 4   PREP TIME: 5 MINS   COOKING TIME: 20 MINS

Ingredients

1 pot of beans with benefits

8 sausages

400g pasta shapes

1 tblsp oil

1 clove garlic, chopped

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 tsp low salt stock

½ tsp sugar

Method

  1. Cook the sausages. Cut into thick slices.
  2. In the mean-time cook the pasta as per packet instructions.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan, add garlic. Fry for a few seconds then add tomatoes, stock and sugar. I don’t normally advocate the addition of sugar in savoury cooking but it does help to bring out the flavour of the tomatoes. Add the beans with benefits. Heat everything through for 5 mins.
  4. Drain the pasta and return to the pan with the sauce and chopped sausage. Stir to mix.
  5. Sprinkle with parmesan and drizzle with chilli oil if desired.
