Ingredients

  • 8 pork sausages
  • 400g linguine
  • 100g rocket
  • 1-2 red chillies, seeds in or out (depending on how hot you like it), finely chopped
  • 150ml single cream
  • PLUS 2 tsp olive oil

Tip

Sausage & rocket wraps
Fry 2 sliced onions in oil until golden, add the chillies for 30 secs, then stir through 6 tbsp tomato chutney. Cook the sausages as above. Spoon the chunks onto 4 warmed flour tortillas. Add the onion relish and a handful of rocket then roll up.

Method

  1. Squeeze the sausagemeat out of the skins, breaking into grape-size chunks. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry the chunks for about 8 mins until crisp and golden.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta and chop most of the rocket. Add the chilli to the sausages, fry for 30 secs, then tip in the cream and chopped rocket. Season and heat until the rocket has just wilted.

  3. Drain the pasta, reserving some of the cooking liquid, then mix the pasta through the sauce with a splash of cooking water. Top with remaining rocket
