Our 30 minute recipe

  1. Cook the pasta

    Heat the oven to 200C/ fan 180C/ gas 6 and boil the kettle. 

    Cook the pasta following pack instructions, reserving 2 tbsps cooking water before draining.

  2. Fry the sausages

    Heat some oil in a pan over medium-high heat and fry the sausages for 5 mins, or until brown. Remove and keep aside. 

    Add the red onion and fry for 5 mins

    Add a knob of butter and the CHILLI & FENNEL MIX and stir well.  

    Mix in the SMOKED SALT & CHIVE pot and the passata.

    Add the GARLIC VEGETABLE STOCK pot with 120ml of boiling water and mix well. 

  3. Add the kale and ricotta

    Add the kale to the sauce and bring it to a gentle simmer. Cook for 3 mins, stirring often. 

    Return the sausages to the pan then add the pasta and 2 tbsps of ricotta. Stir well.  (Add 1-2 tbsps of pasta cooking water to the pan if the sauce looks dry.) 

  4. Finishing touches

    Tip the pasta mixture into a baking dish and top with little dots of ricotta here and there. 

    Grate cheese on top and bake in the oven for 10 mins, then serve with salad on the side (optional).

This was really tasty. I used spinach instead of kale and fat free yogurt rather than ricotta to save calories. Also veggie sausages (LM rosemary) so I changed it up quite a bit but over all so so good

Holly - 8th July 2020

Really delicious, one of our favourites. Makes loads, we've got some for lunch tomorrow. I would agree with the other reviews that say you need to like the aniseed taste of fennel.
