Ingredients

  • 280 g 9oz jar of Waitrose Cooks’ Ingredients Chargrilled Peppers In Olive Oil
  • 4 Waitrose Hickory Pork Butter Bean & Red Pepper Jumbo Sausages
  • 300 g gluten-free macaroni
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove peeled
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • handful of basil leaves torn
  • 20 g pecorino shaved with a vegetable peeler

Instructions

  1. Drain the peppers, reserving the oil, and roughly slice any larger pieces of pepper. Heat ½ tbsp of the reserved oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, then fry the sausages for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown all over. 

  2. Remove from the pan, cool slightly, then slice and return to the pan, frying for 4-5 minutes over a medium heat until coloured all over, there is no pink meat and the juices run clear.

  3. Meanwhile, simmer the pasta in a pan of salted water according to pack instructions (about 5-7 minutes).

  4.  In a large bowl, coarsely grate the tomatoes (discarding the skins as they come away) and finely grate the garlic. Add the sliced peppers and 1½ tbsp of the reserved oil, then season.

  5. Drain the pasta and toss into the bowl, along with the sausage. Serve scattered with the basil leaves and shaved pecorino.
