Sausages in tomato sauce

Salsicce al pomodoro. This is a great way to turn the humble banger into something special. Use the best quality sausage you can find – at least 90% meat. This dish is often made with chipolatas and served cold as an antipasto. Serves 4.

Sausages in tomato sauce ingredients

  • 8 sausages (preferably Italian but any high meat content sausage will do)
  • 100 milliliters dry white wine
  • 250 milliliters passata
  • salt and pepper
  1. Prick the sausages with a fork, put the in a pan and add 2 tablespoons of water. Cook over a low heat, turning occasionally. When the water has evaporated the sausages will start to fry in their own fat. Continue until they are golden brown.
  2. Add the wine and cook until it is completely evaporated and the sausages are just starting to fry again.
  3. Add the passata, season with salt and pepper, cover and simmer for around 15 minutes.
  4. This dish can be cooked with small sausages and served cold as an antipasto.

  1. Grrrrr:( meant to say was apprehensive about the white wine and felt sure it should be red ……. but I was wrong!

  2. This is soooooooooooooooo simple but sooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. The sausages I used were only 70% meat but it still made them really tasty. Made extra with Tesco finest chipolates too and ate them cold on the beach today! Scrumptious!
