Saucy Sausage Pasta

Saucy Sausage pasta for 4 people .  This is a frugal recipe as you no doubt with probably already have these items in stock.


1 chopped medium onion
1 tbsp Olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 tap chilli powder
400g chopped tomatoes
300g short pasta ( such as fusilli)


Put a large pan of water on to boil. heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the sausage  on a fairly high heat until they are brown all over then chop them into chunks. Now turn the heat down and add the onion and garlic, cooking them until they have softened.
Stir in the chilli powder and tomatoes with the sausages, bring the sauce to the boil then turn the heat down and let it bubble for about 10 minutes while you cook the pasta.

Drop the pasta into the pan of boiling water and cook according to the pack instructions. Drain the pasta, then tip it into the frying pan with the sausage sauce, mixing well to coat. Dish up immediately with crusty bread.
