Instructions

Prep the Veggies
1

Pop a large saucepan of water onto boil with ¼ tsp of salt. We will use it later for the pasta. Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).

FRY THE SAUSAGE MEAT
2

Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Add the sausage meat to the pan, and cook until browned, 5-6 mins, using a wooden spoon to break it up as it cooks.

NOW THE VEGGIES
3

Add the onion to the sausage and cook until softened, 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and fennel seeds. Stir and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Tip: Fennel is quite a strong flavour. If you're not a fan, only use a little to start with. Add the tomato purée, stir and cook for a further 2 mins.

SIMMER THE RAGU
4

Pour the chopped tomatoes into your pan, stir together and allow the ragu to simmer gently until reduced and thickened, 12-15 mins. Season with salt and pepper. Tip: Add a sprinkle of sugar too (if you have some), it will really lift the flavour of the tomatoes. IMPORTANT: The sausage meat is cooked when no longer pink.

COOK THE PASTA
5

While your ragu is cooking, add the pappardelle to the boiling water and cook until tender, 10 mins. Do any washing up while everything cooks!

Finish
6

Once cooked, drain the pasta in a colander and drizzle over a little olive oil to stop it sticking together. Add the pasta to your ragu along with half of the parsley and half the Grated Italian Style hard cheese. Toss together. Serve on plates and top with the remaining parsley and Grated hard Italian Style hard cheese. Buon appetito!
