Sausages aren't restricted to a sausage sizzle friends, oh no. Want a different way to use sausages? Try making meatballs. Yes, meatballs! Treat yourself to this damn good beef sausage pasta bake, my next recipe in this series. Hot tip: try using flavoured beef sausages to take this dish to the next level!
Aussie Beef Sausage Pasta Bake
1kg beef sausages
400g penne pasta, cooked
750g pasta sauce
200g parmesan cheese, grated
75g toasted pine nuts (pantry: 20ml red wine vinegar)
We’re going to use the sausages to make meatballs, so remove the skin and use around 1tbsp of sausage meat and roll into balls. Heat an oiled frypan over mid-high heat, place the meatballs in the frypan to cook, turning them occasionally so that they cook evenly. Add the red wine vinegar so that you deglaze the pan and gather all the flavour.
Now the pine nuts and pasta sauce can be added, stirring to coat the meatballs. Allow some time for the sauce to heat in the pan together with the meatballs. Once sauce has begun to simmer the cooked pasta can be stirred through.
Then, put it all in a baking tray - add cheese and place it in the oven until cheese is melted and it looks yummy to serve!
