Slimming Eats Recipe
Extra Easy – 1 syn per serving
- 8 low fat sausages (2 syns)*
- 1 red onion, quartered and sliced thinly
- 450g of cherry/grape tomatoes, halved
- 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar (use a good quality one)
- 250ml of chicken stock
- 2 teaspoons of brown sugar (2 syns)
- 320g orecchiette pasta (or use an alternative pasta if you can’t get this)
- fresh Italian parsley
- black pepper
- Frylight or Pam spray
*low fat sausages will vary in syn value. The turkey 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 with some Frylight or Pam spray over a medium high heat.
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 Frylight or Pam spray, 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.
