Sausage & Sage Pasta

Food for growing boys. Or comfort food for women who don’t need to grow, but do need lots of sustenance while raising growing boys.

Tip: The coarse Microplane is the best tool for fresh parmesan, or use the Microplane ribbon grater if you like bigger parmesan shavings.


  • packet (6-8) good-quality pork sausages
  • punnet cherry tomatoes
  • handful fresh sage, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • about 12-14oz (350g) dried pasta shapes
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • parmesan to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C for a fan oven), Gas Mark 6.
  2. With a sharp knife, slit open the sausages lengthways, remove the skins. Break the meat into rough balls and place in a roasting tin with the tomatoes. Scatter over the chopped sage, drizzle with olive oil and lightly season.
  3. Roast for 20 minutes until the sausagemeat is cooked and the tomatoes have created a thick sauce. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in boiling salted water, following the instructions on the packet. Drain, add to the roasting tin and toss everything together well. Season with black pepper, serve with grated parmesan.
