hi guys .
Today , I want to show you a really handy pantry pasta recipe that makes use of stuff you most likely have to hand .
It's all about sizzling sausages , beautiful sweated down onions and all the spice from the store cupboards with chilli , oregano and some fennel seeds .
The beauty of this recipe is that it just comes together in the time it takes for the pasta to cook and leaves you with a luscious and gorgeous indulgent pasta that is ready to be served to the dinner table .
So we're gonna start it off by slicing up our onion .
I have one large onion here , and I'm gonna slice it nice and finely so that it cooks out quite quickly .
Now , the true success of this pantry pasta is allowing those onions to sweat out and become nice and sweet and caramelised .
So give them a minute before you start cooking off your pasta for your pasta .
I have a big pot of boiling water .
I'm gonna salt that quite heavily and then add our spaghetti in and get it started cooking .
OK , we've got pasta cooking away .
We've got onions nicely sweated down .
It's time to get in there with some good Italian sausages .
I'm gonna squeeze the meat out of the casings and then slice up some garlic and get it all in the pan and get it cracking .
Once the garlic is in there , there's serious flavour action going on the base of this pan .
But don't be afraid of those gnarly bits .
I want kind of tiny little crispy bits .
I want those bigger , meatier bits , so don't break it down too much .
And once you have it at this point , now it's time to get in there with our store cupboard essentials .
I've got some fennel seeds , some chilli flakes , a little bit of dried oregano and a tin of cherry tomatoes , so let's get our sauce on right now .
We are cooking .
Those cherry tomatoes are in there .
They've created a bit of a sauce , and then you've got all those great flavours from the fennel , the oregano and that chilli flake in there as well .
Do make sure to season at this point always important with a recipe like this to make sure that you season as you go .
And now that we have this sizzling away and starting to kind of come together as a beautiful sauce .
Our pasta is nearly cooked .
I'm gonna blitz up some pecorino and then let's serve up , OK , Time to assemble .
We've got the Peppino cheese .
We've got our sauce nearly there .
Our pasta is definitely cooked , but before we combine it all , I want to get in there and just taste this sauce to make sure we're in the right place .
Wow , that sausage meat is super fatty and it's created this rich and IOUs sauce along with the spices in there , The sweetness of the tomatoes .
Good things are happening in here and I don't want it to be too saucy .
So we're literally going to add the pasta in here , get it mixed around with a little bit of pecorino cheese and serve it up .
Last little touch of pecorino .
And just have a look at that .
That is a serious pantry pasta that only takes minutes to make .
And the beauty of it is that you get all the richness of a Ragu with half the time , if not even more than half the time .
So let's dig in and try some .
Hm Hm .
Oh , there are so many good things happening in this dish .
Right now .
It's the meatiness of the sausage .
It's the levels of spice you've got chilli flakes , the fennel , the sweetness of the fennel , and then that kind of rounded flavour you get from oregano .
The fattiness of the sausage is essential here , and that's what's giving you that lovely kind of wrap around sauce across the spaghetti .
Simple little ingredients that just elevated the basil .
The pecorino all kind of go to making a really simple pasta that you can make in minutes .
