Slimming Eats Recipe
Extra Easy – 1 syn per serving
Green/Vegetarian – 1 syn per serving (use a vegetarian sausage)
- 8 sausages (2 syns)* (use gluten or vegetarian alternative)
- 1 red onion, quartered and sliced thinly
- 400g/14oz of cherry/grape tomatoes, halved
- 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar (use a good quality one)
- 240ml (1 cup) of chicken or vegetable stock
- 2 teaspoons of brown sugar (2 syns)
- 300g/10oz orecchiette pasta (can use a gluten free pasta)
- fresh Italian parsley
- black pepper
- spray oil
*sausages will vary in syn value. The ones I used were 0.5 syns for 2, so be sure to check the syn value of the sausages you use
Remove the casing from the sausages and roughly chop the meat.
Spray a frying pan over a medium high heat with spray oil..
Add the sausage meat, season with a little black pepper and fry until lightly golden.
Remove from pan and set aside.
Spray pan with a little more spray oil, add the onion and fry on a medium heat, until lightly caramelised, you may need to keep adding a little bit of stock to prevent from sticking.
Add the tomatoes and balsamic vinegar, and fry for a couple of minutes, till tomatoes have softened.
Add the sausages back to the pan, along with the stock and sugar and simmer, until stock reduces down.
In the meantime add your pasta to a saucepan of salted boiling hot water and cook until al dente. Drain and then add to the sausage mixture and stir to combine.
Top with some fresh chopped Parsley.
