Recipe type: Lunch
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
  • 400 g Your favourite sausages
  • 1 teaspoon Fennel seeds
  • 2 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 2 Banana shallots
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 100 ml Red wine
  • 1 heaped tablespoon Tomato puree
  • 2 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 3 sprig Fresh thyme
  • 1 Bay leaf
  1. Squeeze the sausage meat out of the skins into a bowl. Add the fennel seeds and mix well with your hands. Take a walnut sized piece of the mixture and roll into a ball, repeat until all the mixture is used. This is easier if you oil your hands.
  2. Put the oil in a large frying pan over a moderate heat. Place the sausage meat balls in the oil and brown on all sides, they don't have to be cooked through at this stage. Once brown remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the shallots to the pan and cook for 7 minutes, add the garlic and cook for a further 5 minutes stirring to stop the garlic catching. Once the shallots are soft add the wine and cook off to evaporate the alcohol for 5 minutes. Add the tomato puree and combine the ingredients well.
  4. Add the tomatoes and stir to combine then add the herbs. Reduce the heat to medium low and add the sausage balls back to the pan. Cook for a further 12 minutes. Add the pasta to the sauce and serve.
