30 Minute Cheesy Sausage Pasta Bake Recipe

Have dinner on the table within thirty minutes with this simply delicious cheesy sausage pasta bake recipe!

Now I don’t know about you, but I often buy yummy looking packets of flavoured sausages while they are on special, pop them in the freezer and spend the next 3 months wondering how I should cook them besides serving them with oven fries and a salad. Here is the answer!

You can use whatever flavoured sausages you like, even plain ones if you are on a budget – just make sure you season accordingly with a little extra salt and pepper. I’m thinking of using chicken sausages next time!

Serves: 4
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Difficulty: EASY

30 Minute Sausage Pasta Bake

 

Ingredients:
500g dried pasta, any brand or shape
2 teaspoons olive oil
500g sausages, whichever flavoured ones you like the look of
4 tablespoons tomato paste
2 x 410g cans diced tomatoes
100g baby spinach
2/3 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves, torn
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
1½ cups grated mozzarella or other grated tasty cheese
Extra shredded basil, to serve

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180°C /160°C fan-forced.
2. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet directions, until just tender. Drain.
3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Squeeze sausage meat from casings into pan. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, for 5 to 6 minutes or until just cooked through. Drain any excess oil, if necessary.
4. Add tomato paste and stir to combine. Stir in tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and add spinach, basil and rosemary, stirring to combine.
5. Add pasta to sausage mixture and season with salt and pepper. Toss well to combine. Spoon mixture into a 10-cup-capacity ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella.
6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Stand for 5 minutes. Serve sprinkled with extra basil.

Notes:
Upgrade your flavour by using tins of tomatoes with added herbs and garlic
Add some mushrooms, zucchini or capsicum for a veggie boost
Use whatever flavoured sausages you like – the spicier the better!
