  • 500 gr Italian or spicy sausages, approx 6
  • 4 cloves garlic sliced
  • 5 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 punnets cherry tomatoes
  • 50 gr piece of parmesan with rind, plus extra to serve
  • 2 handfuls spinach leaves
  • small bunch basil, optional


  • Remove sausage meat from casings.
  • Heat a wide based pan and fry meat, breaking it up as it cooks.
  • Add sliced garlic and cook for a minute.
  • Add stock, pasta, tomatoes and whole chunk of parmesan.
  • Bring to boil then reduce heat and stir frequently to separate pasta and crush tomatoes.
