Super Easy 7 Ingredient Spicy Sausage Pasta

  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 1 Tin Plum Tomatoes
  • 3 Sausages
  • Couple of turns of Chilli flakes or fresh chilli
  • 1 Bag Rocket Or Spinach
  • Grated Parmesan
  • Half A Bag Fresh Pasta

Whip up this amazing dish in no time this evening when you get home from work. It's really tasty, and the chilli packs a good punch!


Step 1

Start off by chopping the garlic up really small, as small as you can fucking get it. Basically chop the shit out of it because the smaller it gets the more flavour there is to spread around.Chop your sausages up in to smaller pieces. Use any type of sausages at all, sure you'll probably have half a pack left over from the weekend.

Step 2

Heat olive oil up in a little frying pan and gently cook the garlic and chilli. Don't give them any colour, judge the chilli yourself but if you like a little kick - keep twisting for a little longer.

Step 3

After a couple of minutes the house will be smelling amazing. Fire in the sausages and give them a bit of colour. You're not cooking them through at this stage. Just about a minute. You can do some fancy chef style shaking the pan if you want.

Step 4

After about 5 minutes fuck the whole tin of tomatoes in and smash them up a bit with a fork. Turn the heat down to a low flame, stick on the pasta and for the next 20 minutes go watch something on Netflix or something.

Step 5

If you've followed these basic instructions, you'll have something that looks like this. The sauce should be thick and luxurious.

Step 6

Fuck in a bag of rocket. Could be spinach as well, or whatever green stuff takes your fancy.

Step 7

Stir the green healthy shit in to the sauce for about 15 seconds.

Step 8

Lash the fresh pasta into boiling water, use any pasta that you want.

Step 9

Your sauce will look gorgeous at this stage. Strain the pasta and keep a tiny amount of the cooking water and pour the pasta in on top of the sauce.Stir it all up and there you have it - a fucking gorgeous tasting pasta that is made from a bunch of leftovers. Simple, rustic, cheap and totally idiot proof.

Step 10

Grate a shit load of parmesan over the top and serve with a nice glass of red.


Boom! So thats it.
