Mixed Pepper and Black Bean Pasta with Dee’s Sausages

26 Nov

This is the perfect hearty dish for a cold winter’s day. Filling and satisfying, it’s got hints of sweetness from the peppers and a touch of mild smokiness. It’s great with pasta or rice, but then I discovered this amazing GF black bean pasta, which is delicious with this dish.

You will need:
1-2 packs of Dee’s Sausages
1 red pepper, chopped in big chunks
1 yellow pepper, chopped in big chunks
1 onion (red or white), sliced
1 can of chopped tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp of dry Italian herbs
25-50g of sugar
2 tbsp of smoked paprika
Salt and pepper
Oil
1 pack of black bean pasta

Method:

Heat up some oil in a pan, add the onion and the chopped peppers.

Cook for about 5-10 minutes until soft and starting to brown. Next add the herbs, spices and garlic and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

Next, add the can of tomatoes and a little salt and pepper to taste. Add a pinch of sugar if it needs it! Leave it to simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the sausages according to the pack instructions. Then leave to cool and cut into pieces.

Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and cook the black bean pasta for 7-10 minutes. You can use regular pasta or rice or even potatoes if you wish.

When the pasta is done strain it and place it on a plate with some of the sausages and the onion and pepper sauce.

Top Tip:

This actually tastes even better the following day as the flavours improve and marry together.

Think about adding spinach or some other mild greens to increase the vegetable intake.

Enjoy, Eoin
