Cooking with Little Miss Ling: Italian Sausage Pasta

This is a super simple pasta recipe with a major flavour kick. The key to this recipe is to take your time and brown the Italian sausages very well to give the sauce the best flavour possible.

Italian Sausage Pasta 330g Italian sausage, skins removed
2 brown onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 cup red wine
2 x 400g cans diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bunch parsley, finely chopped
parmesan, grated
500g pasta, cooked

  1. Heat oil in pot. Brown the sausages, breaking them up into small pieces. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the garlic and cook until aromatic. Stir in the tomato paste and cook until it turns a rusty brown colour. Add the red wine and cook until it is reduced. Add the diced tomatoes and thyme. Partially cover and simmer for 1 hour. Stir through the parsley right before serving. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  2. Mix together the pasta and the sauce. Mix through the desired quantity of parmesan.
