Ingredients

  • 1 onion chopped

  • 1/2 tins chopped tomato

  • 1 sausage skin removed

  • 1 garlic minced

  • 2 carrot grated

Method

  1. Saute onion and garlic till soft. Add sausage meat and encourage it to fall into crumbs with spatula.
  2. When the meat is no longer pink add the carrot - you are aiming for about an equal amount of grated carrot to sausage but its not too important - the carrot adds sweetness and the sausage usually has spices already.
  3. Cook until the carrot is soft and serve with spaghetti and some black pepper and Parmesan.

Handy Hint

This is a great 'not much in the fridge' recipe and goes a long way. When I had not made it for ages recently I went back to my mum for the original recipe and found it in a sainsbury's book where it had tomatoes as an ingredient. I only add them if I am stretching one or two sausages round 3 or 4 people and think it is much nicer without.

    Gluten / egg free would depend on sausages and pasta used. Sometimes there is sausage meat for sale but I am dubious about the quality of the meat and prefer good quality sausages - just use less. Have fed 3 from one sausage and a very wobbly carrot on occasions!!!
