Italian sausage pasta with tomato puree

Italian sausage pasta with tomato puree

Made with Mutti Passata

Mutti Passata is a very versatile product that can be used in quick dishes due to the fact it is already reduced, as well as in slower cook dishes like Bolognese. However it is cooked it will retain its bright red colour, velvety texture and sweet flavour. Velvety smooth with no skins or seeds, it takes 2kg of fresh tomatoes to make 1kg of Mutti Passata.

Italian sausage pasta with tomato puree: Method

  1. Bring four litres of water to a boil for the fettuccine. Cook according to packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan on moderate - high temperature. Once hot, drop one sage leaf in, it should sizzle slightly if hot enough. Add remainder of sage and cook, turning occasionally until they are crisp. Drain them on paper towels, leaving the oil in the skillet.
  3. Add the chopped eschalot to the already warm pan and cook on moderate heat until translucent. Add the sausage mince and stir until browned.
  4. Add Passata and white wine and allow to cook for 10 mins or until sauce has thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Drain pasta and reserve a 1/2 cup of liquid. Toss through the pork mince and top with crispy sage leaves and freshly shaved Parmesan.
