Mains - Misc


  • 200 g sausage
  • 1 c sliced red onion
  • 1 T red wine vinegar
  • 8 g butter
  • 1/2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 T honey
  • 125 g pasta (small or medium)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 5 oz single cream
  • 2 T whole grain mustard
  • 1 T chopped chives


Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Grill (broil) the sausages according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Meanwhile, peel and slice the onions and toss in the vinegar. Leave to stand for 5 minutes. Melt the butter with the oil and fry the onions with the vinegar for 5 minutes until just softened.

Add the honey and continue to cook, stirring, for a further 5 minutes until golden. Cook the pasta in the boiling water according to the manufacturer's instructions. Drain well and return to the saucepan.  

Cut the cooked sausages into chunks and mix into the drained pasta along with the onions and seasoning. Over a low heat stir in the cream and mustard. Heat through, stirring, for 2-3 minutes until very hot. To serve, pile into warmed serving bowls and sprinkle with chopped chives and extra black pepper if liked and serve with crusty bread and crisp salad.


SJ Note 7 March 2010: We've had this several times, and adjusted the recipe according to our tastes, so quite like it.  If you make a double batch of everything but the pasta, the second half will freeze quite nicely to have a ready meal in the freezer - just add pasta when you're ready for it.  We used a different kind of whole grain mustard this last time we had it, and could really taste the mustard, so do be sure to tweak the amounts of things based on your own tastes and supplies.
