Garlic Sausage Tagliatelle

14 Sep

This dish is perfect for good food on a budget, which makes it ideal for large groups of people or a student. It uses basic ingredients but uses cooking methods that really enhance the simple flavors to make them spectacular.  Such as the roasting of the garlic, it really develops the garlic flavor to transform it into a sweet flavor which goes wonderfully with the sausages.

Garlic Sausage Tagliatelle (Serves 4)

200g cherry tomatoes, halved

1 red onion, cut into rough chunks

8 good quality sausages

1 garlic bulb, the top sliced off to expose the cloves

1tbsp rapeseed oil

1tsp oregano

300g tagliatelle

salt and pepper

grated Parmesan, to serve

  • Preheat the oven to 200ºc/375ºf. Place the tomatoes, red onion, sausages and garlic bulb in an oven proof dish, avoid overcrowding.
  • Drizzle the ingredients with the rapeseed oil and balsamic vinegar and sprinkle the oregano over them. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Roast in the oven for 35mins turning the sausages halfway through.
  • With 15mins left on the cooking time, put the pasta in salted boiling water and cook for 10-12mins until al dente.
  • When the roasting is done, remove the sausages and slice diagonally then squeeze the cloves out of their skins and mush them with a fork.
  • Drain the pasta and add to the roasting dish. Coat in the tomato sauce then return the sausages to the dish. Taste and correct the seasoning.
  • Serve hot sprinkled with Parmesan.
