Directions

 

  1. In a saute pan heat oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent. Add the garlic, chillies and oregano and cook until aromatic, about 1-2 minutes. 
  2. Add the tomato puree along with 2 tsp water to the pan and stir to coat well. Cook for 2 minutes. 
  3. Crumble the Tesco Plant Chef Cumberland-Style Bangers in the tomato mixture. Cook for about 5 minutes. 
  4. Pour the crushed tomatoes into the pan. Stir to coat and bring to a bubble then cover.  Cook for about 20-25 minutes until the sauce is thickened and reduced, stirring every so often to prevent sticking.
  5. When reduced, pour in the cream and season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  6. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions to al dente. When cooked, reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking water.
  7. Add the pasta to the sauce along with some of the pasta water. Stir to coat well in the sauce and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the grated hard cheese.
  8. Serve garnished with chopped parsley and more of the cheese. Enjoy!
