  • Summary

    Rather than hunting down high quality Italian sausages, paying top dollar then squeezing the meat out of the casings, just make your own! All it requires is pork mince and basic seasonings you probably already have in the pantry. Incredible flavour, a lot healthier (far less oil!) and you can adjust the flavourings to your taste!

    Ingredients

    • 300g ziti or penne pasta (Note 1)
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 3 garlic cloves
    • 1 onion (brown, white or yellow), finely chopped
    • 1lb/500g ground pork (mince) OR Italian Sausages removed from casings (Note 2)
    • 1.4lb / 700g bottle of tomato passata / pureed tomato (Note 3)
    • ½ cup water
    • 1 tsp dried basil
    • 1 tsp dried oregano
    • 1 tsp sugar (any type)
    • Salt and pepper
    • ¾ cup grated mozzarella cheese
    • 2 tsp fennel seeds
    • 1 tbsp paprika (any type - all go great with this)
    • 3 tsp red pepper flakes OR 2 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
    • 2 tsp onion powder
    • 1 tsp black pepper
    • 1 tsp salt (table salt)
