Today is my last day off before i go back to work tomorrow and i cannot wait , since i cannot do what i want due to my injured hand . Even for cooking i am limited so this is why today’s post is an easy recipe but it was really good , my fiancee really enjoyed it . This is the kind of dish that i cook when i have nothing in the fridge and the weather is bad , for the last few days in ireland we had continuous strong wind so i stayed home and looked in my freezer as i always keep some meat there . For the tomato sauce i used Cumberland sausages which have a 75% meat content and a jar of spicy dolmio sauce . It is kind of like a bolognese but with sausage instead of mince beef . Actually in the following weeks i must cook and post the recipe of my grandma wich is pastachoute , i don’t know the origins of this dish , all i can say is that it is sexy. basically it is a bolognese but with corned beef instead of mince beef , not really a healthy dish but it is full of childhood memories for me , i will post it soon on my page.
*8 good quality sausages
*3 garlic cloves
*2 jars of dolmio tomato sauce ( i used the spicy one but you can use any tomato sauce )
*300 grs of spaghetti
*1/2 tsp chilli flakes
*3/4 cup grated mozarella.
1. Thinly slice the raw sausages and sear in a frying pan for around 2 minutes before adding the diced onion and chopped garlic.
2.Once the ingredients are nice and golden add the tomato sauce and a pint of water . Season with salt, pepper , chilli flakes and a small pinch of sugar as the tomato could be a bit acid.
3.Reduce on low heat until the sauce has thickened.
4.In a pot of boiling salty water cook the spaghetti , it should take around 8 min depending of the way you like your pasta ( fully cooked or al dente ) and drain.
5.Serve the pasta in plates or pasta bowls ,pour the sauce on top and sprinkle with cheese , you could serve this dish with some garlic bread and a green salad .
