One Pot Sausage, Caramelised Fennel and Lemon Pasta

There were about six million sausages left over from a BBQ this weekend and, having exhausted my patience for eating them with gravy (something I didn’t think it possible to tire of, I’ll admit) I was craving something just a little bit lighter and brighter. The lemon and herbs added right at the end of this recipe allow it to just about retain a spring/summer feel, whilst being comforting enough to suit the reality of the weather we’ve actually had to endure this season. It may not have escaped your notice that I have used tory pasta for this dish. Specifically, ditaloni regati from Waitrose. I’m confident pretty much any shape you have in will work (realistically, what is the worst that could happen), but I reckon the smaller, the better. You might also clock that I haven’t used any garlic, that is literally just because I could not be arsed to chop any. I’m quite sure that if you choose to it will only improve matters.

Freshly laundered clothes will no longer dry in a matter of hours, beer gardens are cancelled until further notice, darkness reigns on the way too and from work but, most importantly, the le creuset is back on top of the cooker and ready to make me feel better. You’ll have to excuse the potentially poor formatting in this recipe, I’m in between laptops and using the app but wanted to get it out into the world before I forget. It’s a quick, cheap, easily repeatable vegetarian meal – and I know that’s what you come to me for. Serves 4 2 carrots / 4 potatoes / 1 onion / 1 leek / 4-8 vegetarian sausages / 1 litre stock / 2 heaped tbsps plain flour / 1 heaped tsp soft dark brown sugar / 1 heaped tbsp marmite Cook sausages according to pack instructions (I use Quorn frozen, 18 mins at 180) Peel and roughly chop …
