One Pan Pasta – Sausage Tomato & Lentils

One Pan Pasta – Sausage Tomato & Lentils

An easy one pan pasta recipe flavoured with sausage tomato and lentils a quick no fuss family dinner

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 2 good quality pork sausages
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 400 g tin crushed tomatoes
  • 400 g tin whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp dried Italian herbs
  • 400 g tin lentils
  • 300 ml stock
  • 350 g Dry Pasta
  1. Start with a pan, you will need one with a lid.
  2. Heat oil in the pan over a medium heat
  3. Add the onion, celery, and carrot and sauté until beginning to soften (around 5 mins)
  4. Remove the skin from the sausages and cut up the sausage meat into bite-sized pieces, add this to the pan and brown
  5. Add the garlic cloves, I don’t cut these I just peel and smash them with the blade of my knife, sauté everything for a further 1-2 minutes until you can smell the garlic
  6. Add both tins of tomatoes (for the whole peeled tomatoes I quite like using cherry tomatoes as they are a little smaller) and the tired herbs
  7. Drain and rinse the tinned lentils, add these to the pan along with the stock (chicken or vegetable) and give everything a good stir
  8. Add the dry pasta (I use Countdown Essentials Penne Pasta, but other shapes will work fine too), stir, let the mix come to the boil, then cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. It should take around 15 mins for the pasta to become tender, but this will vary a little depending on the pasta shape you have chosen
  9. If the pasta is not quite tender when you remove the lid, pop the lid back on and cook for a further couple of minutes. If the pasta sauce is thinner than you would prefer, cook the pasta for a few more minutes with the lid off so that extra moisture can escape.
  10. Serve

I use either vegetable or chicken stock in this recipe
