Simple comfort food is key some days. Try this easy, spicy pork sausage penne tossed in a simple bolognese-like sauce.
I love this Pork Sausage Penne Bolognese, as a matter of fact, I am adding this to our weekly dinner repertoire because:
1. It’s a bowl of carbs.
2. It is super quick to put together.
3. I can bulk up for the non veggie eater’s lunchbox. That’s the husband in case you were wondering.
4. It is bloody delicious, rather filling and comforting. Yes.
5. You can simply use any types of sausages for this recipe – a spicy sausage is best, as this basically ensures an immediate kick of flavor without having to worry too much about adding spices and such.
I made a simple bolognese sauce with garlic, finely chopped onion and a tin of tomatoes and sneakily added some carrots and chopped spring onions in there too. Don’t forget the grated parmesan on the table when you are dishing up. Enjoy!
