Speedy Sausage Tagliatelle Bolognese

image

Today I experimented with a quick and easy variation of the all time family favourite, bolognese. This is the perfect fast fix for people always on the go, as it took me less than 20 minutes to cook. Not only speedy to make its cost effective, as I used very few ingredients and ended up making use of things I had left over at the end of the week.

The dish is light, delicate and a warm pleasure to the tastebuds. I prepared this meal for two people, but you could easily double up ingredients and feed four.

Ingredients:

3tbsp of Olive Oil

1 garlic clove peeled and chopped

1 small onion peeled and finely diced

220grams of cherry tomatoes – halved

4 large good quality pork sausages (if Italian sausages are not available)

180g of fresh egg pasta tagliatelli

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Sea salt and ground black pepper

A small pinch of chilli flakes

Method:

1.) Add olive oil to large frying pan, add in the onions and garlic and sweat down for five minutes until soft. Remove sausage meat from the skins, add to the pan and brown for five minutes. Remember to break up the sausage meat as you fry it, so that it resembles mince.

2.) Cook tagliatelli in boiling salted water until al dente or to liking.

3.) At this stage the sausage meat should be slightly coloured, add in the halved tomatoes, some seasoning and the chill flakes to the pan. Continue to cook over a medium heat for five minutes until the tomatoes break down. Add a few tablespoons of pasta water to the pan as it cooks to create a sauce.

4.) Use tongues to remove cooked pasta and place it directly into the pan with the sauce. Toss well and adjust the seasoning to taste mixing in a small handful of grated parmesan.

My name is James welcome to my blog. I am a 23 year old self taught kitchen loiterer where i am most happiest. I was diagnosed with terminal HCC Liver Cancer October 2012 since then i have found much more time to experiment in the kitchen and develop my knowledge. Making cookery my number one release and hobby. On a lighter note, I have been in love with food since when I couldn't possibly remember, the story of me in my youth asking Father Christmas for cucumber sandwiches doesn't surprise anyone in the slightest. I enjoy cooking, eating out, entertaining, putting smiles on peoples faces when they take their first mouthful of my dish/force feeding them and talking about food, generally basing life around the next meal. I tend to get on tremendously well immediately with anyone who has a passion for food and life in general. In my blog i will add new tried and tested restaurants, recipes and much more. Aimed at anyone even if they have hardly ever picked up a skillet. I believe great things can be achieved using minimal ingredients, hence why my favourite food to cook and eat is Italian. Hoping to meet other food enthusiast bloggers and share my recipes with fellow foodies. Every little helps when it comes to cooking and choosing between a vast amount of eateries. Let's avoid the mediocre ones and promote the unpretentious hidden gems where the true greatness lies. I hope you find this page useful and any feedback would be fantastic. Enjoy! And of course, Bon Apetit!
