Sausage and Pasta Bake

 
I like doing interesting things with sausages instead of the usual bangers and mash with gravy. Don't get me wrong, I love bangers and mash; I just think that sausages have a full range of usage which should be explored.

Ingredients:



  • 3 sausages

  • 2 tbsp oil

  • 3 onions, peeled and coarsly chopped

  • 2 courgettes, sliced and ends removed

  • 1 tsp sage, finely chopped (fresh or dried)

  • 4 tsp instant gravy

  • 300ml water

  • 300g pasta, any variety (I used a mix)

  • 40g cheddar cheese, grated


 

Method:



  1. Put on a large pan of water to boil for the pasta.

  2. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees.

  3. Fry the sausages in the oil until starting to brown.

  4. Cut the sausage up into 1cm chunks.

  5. Add the onions and courgettes to the pan and stir well.

  6. Fry for a further few minutes until the onion starts to soften.

  7. Add the sage, instant gravy and water and stir well.

  8. Simmer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile start cooking the pasta according to it's instructions.

  9. When the pasta is done, drain it and mix it with the sausage and courgette mix in an ovenproof dish.

  10. Sprinkly the cheese over the top and place in the oven.

  11. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the cheese goes nice and golden brown.


 
Serves 2 as a complete meal.
