Veggie Sausage & Feta Penne

This is a hearty and delicious meal for hungry bellies. It is simple rustic food and pleases veggies and non-vegetarians alike!! Is also great the next day on a sandwich; if there is any leftover!! For a vegan version simply omit the feta or use soy cheese instead.

Preparation time 30-35mins
Serves 4

  • 250g (9 oz) Penne Pasta
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp crushed chillies
  • 1 250g (9 oz) punnet of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tbs tomato paste
  • 400g (14 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 4-6 vegetarian sausages
  • 150g (5 oz) vegetarian feta cheese or soy cheese, diced
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped
  • salt & cracked fresh pepper

Cook the pasta according to packet instructions in a large pot of rapidly boiling water. Rinse well and set aside.

Heat the oil in a medium sized fry pan; add the garlic and chilli and cook 1-2 minutes until fragrant and garlic is soft. Add the cherry tomatoes, brown sugar and cumin powder; cook for 3-4 minutes until tomatoes begin to wilt and soften.

Add the tomato paste and crushed tomatoes, turn down and simmer gently for 20 minutes until reduced and rich in flavour. A little water may be added if sauce reduces too quickly.

While the sauce is simmering cooked the vegetarian sausages in another fry-pan until brown and cooked through; set aside to cool slightly and slice diagonally.

Once the sauce has reduced; combine with the pasta in a large pot; add the sausages and toss well until pasta is warmed.

Add the feta or soy cheese and thyme and season with salt and pepper; toss quickly for a minute until the cheese has just melted.

Serve immediately with a light side salad and crusty bread on just on its own… num num nummmmm
