Food: Maccheroni con la Salsiccia e le Carote

Aren’t I good to you? You can (once again) thank my Mama for this. She cooks ALL the best food. This recipe is one of my absolute all time favourites, and is a wonderful “store cupboard” recipe.

Macaroni with Sausage Meat and Carrots

You will need:

  • 225gr. good sausages (the herbier and spicier, the better)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, grated
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 small can of tomato purée
  • 110ml chicken or beef stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 350g macaroni or other pasta
  • 75g grated parmesan or mature cheddar
  • Seasoning to taste (chilli might be fun – be creative)

Make it!

  1. Slit down the side of the sausages and remove the meat – I’m aware that you can buy sausage meat loose, or pork mince might do, but there are so many nicely flavoured sausages out there (and they are CHEAP)
  2. Heat the oil and cook the onion gently until translucent
  3. Add the sausagemeat and lightly brown, breaking it up with a spatula
  4. Add the carrots, tomatoes and tomato purée, stock, bay leaf and oregano and cook covered over a low heat for 30 min
  5. Taste for seasoning. You may decide you want it to be garlicky, or super spicy, or whatever. The joy of cooking it that you can always make it the hell up
  6. Cook and drain the pasta and mix with the sauce
  7. Serve with the grated cheese, baby

Yet another one of those easy recipes that you can make tonnes of and send you boyfriend to work with. Isn’t tupperware great?
