Spicy Sausage Pasta…

Sometimes all we want is something quick to throw together for a quick and easy lunch and this is where this comes in handy. You can add extra vegetables if you wish, extra spice, grill some cheese on top, change the sausages to which ever ones you prefer, add chicken, beef, quorn, basically its a nice simple recipe that can be adapted to suit everyone’s tastes. And its cheap too, my kind of meal.
