Introduction

Two meals in one - the first night you have sausages with rice and veggies complete with a tomatoey sauce to go over it, and the second night you have a tasty tomato sauce with pasta and a salad. Two nights taken care of in one go - whoopee! (Quantities depend on how many you're cooking for, they are only a general guide. I find this feeds 2 adults and 3 children)

Method

Sausage, Rice and Pasta Two Night Meal is a community recipe submitted by arista and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • In a large heavy-based pan, gently fry onion in some oil until soft. Add sausages and fry until browned, prick them a bit to try and remove excess fat. Remove sausages and onion from pan and drain off oil (important so that sauce doesn't have a horrible layer of fat the next day!)
  • Return onion and sausage to pan and then add the rest of the ingredients including the tomato juice from the can and a little water. Stir and simmer for 30 mins, covered. I stir in a little milk at the end of the cooking time to make it a bit creamy.
  • Meanwhile, cook rice and veggies.
  • Serve sausages with rice and veggies and a little of the tomato sauce over the rice.
  • The next night, blitz the remaining sauce, heat it and use it as a pasta sauce. The sausages should have given the sauce an interesting flavour.
  • If there were any sausages left from the night before, remove them before you process the sauce, slice them up small, and add them to the sauce as a sort of meatball.
