    About this recipe: A friend gave this sausage pasta recipe to me a few years back, and my family can't seem to get enough of it. This is a very easy pasta recipe.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 350g farfalle pasta
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 500g Italian sausage, casings removed and diced
    • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli flakes
    • 1 small onion, diced
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 (400g) tins plum tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
    • 350ml double cream
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

    Method

    Yes, yes, yes, yes, MAMA MIA. I did not have any sausage so used chicken instead. Added some tomato puree for that extra tang and liberally sprinkled some Italian seasoning into the mix. Served with some granary bread - delicious. - 29 Jun 2012

    Very nice. Sainsburys were out of italian sausage so I replaced it with chicken fillet strips and sprinkled with fresh basil instead of parsley - yummy! - 14 Apr 2012

    Altered ingredient amounts. Slightly reduced cream as it seemed quite a lot,it might also work with creme fraiche - 19 Dec 2009
