This hearty, cheesy leek and veggie sausage pasta only takes 20 minutes. Because 20 minutes is quite enough time to spend on dinner.
You could use a variety of possible cheeses e.g. blue cheese, cheddar or parmesan. In this case I fried chopped, uncooked veggie sausages and leeks in butter and then mixed in creme fraiche, blue cheese, a stock cube and cooked pasta, and it was ready! Quick, simple and yummy. My kids react to blue cheese like it is some kind of monster, but mixed up in the pasta there were no complaints.
Cheesy leek and veggie sausage pasta (serves 4)
1 large leek, finely chopped
5 uncooked veggie frankfurter sausages, chopped in to bite sized pieces (I used Quorn hot dogs)
250g shaped pasta e.g. penne/fussili
150ml creme fraiche
50g blue cheese, crumbled or cheddar cheese, grated
1 vegetable stock cube (I like OXO as it crumbles easily)
Fry the chopped sausages and leeks in butter or margarine for about 8 minutes, until cooked through. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the pack instructions. Add the creme fraiche and blue cheese or cheddar cheese to the leeks and sausages and mix well. Drain the cooked pasta and add. Crumble in the stock cube and mix everything really well. Eat! Nice with a little grated cheddar sprinkled on top.
