30 Minute Spicy Sausage Pasta Bake | Recipe

August 31, 2018

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe that has quickly become a firm favourite in our household. I like it because it’s quick, but it’s also great for turning into a pasta bake if you make enough… my 30 Minute Spicy Sausage Pasta Bake.

So with the Spicy Sausage Pasta you make a huge batch, enjoy it on the one night just in a bowl as usual. Then the leftover prep by putting into your baking dish (make sure to cover it – we have oven dishes that come with lids for this reason) and popping into your fridge for cooking at a later day (it can last covered for a couple of days). When you want to cook it, heat your oven to 160c (fan)/180c, top the bake with cheese (and breadcrumbs if you want a crunch) and cook in the oven for 25 minutes!

Spicy Sausage Pasta

(Serves 4)


  • 6 Sausages
  • 1 Large white onion
  • 3 Cloves of garlic
  • 1 Red chilli (seeds or deseeded)
  • 200g Mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Peppers, sliced
  • 200g Passatta
  • Olive oil
  • Enough pasta for four people

For when you’re turning into a pasta bake:

  • As much cheese as you desire (we use a mix of cheddar and mozzarella)
  • Breadcrumbs (if you want a crunch)

To make the Spicy Sausage Pasta:

  1. Put the sausages, onion, garlic and chilli in a food processor. Blend until the sausage mix until smooth and the veg diced.
  2. Get a saucepan of water boiling and cook the pasta as per packet instructions.
  3. Whilst the pasta is cooking, heat some oil in a large frying/sauté pan, put the sausage mixture in, and cook on a medium heat. When it starts to brown put in the mushrooms and pepper.
  4. When the peppers have started to soften add in the passatta. Stir and leave to simmer. Also add a spoonful pasta cooking water into the mix, and stir through.
  5. When the pasta is done, drain it and put into the pan with the sausage mix. Stir so the pasta is coated. Take off the heat.
  6. Immediately serve half up in bowls, grate cheese on top and enjoy.
  7. Put the other half in an oven dish and put in the fridge until reheating.
