My dinner of pasta with spicy sausage and mustard last night was amazing! It’s so easy to cook too. I didn’t have basil so I used thyme leaves instead and any flavour of sausage will do, I used toulouse on this occasion.
1. Boil pasta (obviously)
2. Warm oil in a frying pan, remove the sausage skins and crumble the meat into the heated pan. Cook for about 5 mins until golden
3. Pour in a splash of white wine (a large splash…about a glass) and let it bubble for a minute or two
4. Add a pinch of chilli flakes and a handful of shredded basil (other fresh herbs work just as well here). Add the a tablespoon of dijon mustard and add approx 100ml double cream per person (you can use a little less and top up with a little water from the boiling pasta if you’d rather)
5. Drain and add the pasta, then serve (with parmesan on top if you can’t resist!)
It doesn’t sound like much but it’s so, so tasty.
