100g Pasta (6p from a 500g bag @30p)
3 Sausages (25p from a pack of 8 for 66p)
1 tin chopped tomatoes (31p)
1/2 red onion (10p)
1 garlic clove (5p)
1/2 mozzarella ball (22p for half – optional)
salt & pepper
Chop the onion an garlic and gently fry until softened in either a frying pan or casserole dish that can be used on the hob (saves washing up)
Chop the sausages up into small pieces and add to the pan and cook until browned.
Add the tin of tomatoes and pasta, a tablespoon of herbs, and the salt & pepper, cover and bring to a simmer until the pasta is almost cooked stirring occasionally. There should be enough liquid to cook the pasta but if not add a little extra water – keeping it covered will help cook the pasta in its steam.
When almost done, crumble over the mozzarella cheese (optional or whatever cheese you have) and place in a hot oven (about 200) or under a grill for about 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and begins to colour. (Remember to transfer to an ovenproof dish if using a frying pan that is not oven proof)
