Recipe Shed Meme – 5 ingredients or less

Recipe Shed

We’ve loved joining in with the memes and better late than never we’ve joined in with the Recipe Shed meme run by Keith at the Reluctant House Dad blog. Every Friday he offers up a theme for a recipe based meme for bloggers to join in with. This week the theme was 5 ingredients or less and whilst he had a rather fab looking steak and wedges over on his blog, we decided to pick a Netmums favourite – Sausage and tomato pasta. This regularly appears in the top 20 recipes on the site and is loved by Netmums far and wide. The humble sausage gets a fab twist with just 5 ingredients in total and it’s so yummy almost 50 members have written a comment to let us know how they enjoyed it or how they customised it for their family.

Cut the sausages up into big chunks and fry in a little oil until golden all over then add the chopped onion and garlic and cook until soft.

Pour in the can of chopped tomatoes and simmer for about 10 minutes. Tip the drained can of sweetcorn in for the last 2 minutes.

Meanwhile cook the pasta according to the packet instructions and drain. Mix the pasta into the sausage and tomato sauce and serve. Nice with garlic or crusty bread.

Can be spiced up a little for the adults by adding 1 – 2 teaspoons of chilli powder at the same time as the tomatoes. (OK we know that’s 6 ingredients so ignore that!)
