One pot cheesy sausage macaroni

This recipe is so easy and simple to make, I have made other one pot pasta dishes before and they have always turned out well but this is the winner. The secret to this one is the HECK smoky paprika sausages by using them you don't need to add any other seasonings not even salt and pepper unless you want to.

If you can't get the HECK sausages then you can use other sausages and just add 1 tsp smoked paprika and salt and pepper to taste.


One pot cheesy sausage macaroni 


1 pack HECK smoky paprika sausages (skins removed)
1 carton (400g) passata
1 pint beef stock (from a cube is fine )
250g dry macaroni
2 red peppers (diced)
200g half fat grated mature cheddar
low fat spray oil


Spray a large saucepan with spray oil and put the sausages in. Over a medium heat stir the sausages and break them up into small pieces and cook until browned you can add a little water if it starts to stick.

When the sausages are slightly browned add the peppers and fry for another two minutes. Next add the passata, beef stock and macaroni. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer, Put the lid on and cook for 20 minutes. Taste to check if the pasta is cooked it will still be a little firm but thats ok. Remove from the heat, take off the lid and stir in the grated cheese. Mix very well and then replace the lid and leave to stand off the heat for five minutes.



Serves 4 using cheese as your healthy extra it's 1 syn per portion.
