Sausage and Onion Pasta

Another family favourite and a great easy mid-week dinner option.  I think this was originally a Nigel Slater recipe.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 6 Sausages – Choose your favourites!
  • 2-3 Medium brown onions
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Wholegrain Mustard
  • Single cream – approximately 200ml but use more if you want extra sauce. I have also made this with dairy free cream which works just as well!
  • Pasta – Whatever shape you like!


  1. Slice the onions and add to your pan with a little oil and butter. Cook them on a low heat slowly until softened.
  2. Whilst the onions are cooking remove the sausage meat from the skins and divide into small meatballs.
  3. Fill a separate saucepan with salted water and put on to boil for your pasta.
  4. Once the onions have softened add the little sausage meatballs you have made into the same pan to cook along with the onions.
  5. As the sausage meat starts to brown stir in a tablespoon of Dijon mustard and a tablespoon of wholegrain mustard and turn down the heat on the pan if it’s starting to stick.
  6. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook as per the packet instructions.
  7. Once the sausage meatballs are cooked pour in the single cream and give everything a really good stir.
  8. Drain your pasta and add to the sauce and stir everything together.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve!
