Sausage & Bacon Pasta

Sausage & Bacon Pasta

Pasta is one of our favourite dishes in the Abatan household, left to my son’s devices it will be pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That aside this dish is so easy to make that if you plan ahead you can wrap it and have you or your family tucking in after ½ an hour, but if you are feeling adventurous you can make your own pasta taking the preparation time to an hour.

The attraction of this dish lends to the simplicity of an english breakfast, but the end result is a perfect lunch or dinner that is enjoyed by the whole family. So why not try this dish and let me know how you got on?

Make your own pasta sauce it is cheaper

Until 5 years ago I use to buy ready made pasta sauce, then I had an eureka moment. I asked myself why am I spending £5.00 on almost 2 jars of pasta sauce, when I can make my own? A bottle of  680g passata costs £1 and 400g crushed tomatoes cost 50p. By the time I add basil and the stock cubes, I am already making a saving equivalent to half the price of what I may spend if I decided to buy the pasta sauce off the shelf. You can even make sufficient pasta sauce which you can use at a later date.
