Quantcast

While kids recipes often include pasta, sausages and cheese, very few combine the three so effectively. Marcello Tully's sausage pasta bake recipe also includes anchovies which needn't put children off - as they season rather than dominate the overall flavour

Method
1.
Cook the pasta in a pan of salted boiling water for approximately 15 minutes, or until cooked. Drain and refresh under cold water
2.
Place the chipolatas onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 180°C/gas mark 5
3.
Meanwhile, heat some oil in a pan and add the onions, garlic, anchovies and thyme. Allow to sweat for 5 minutes

Tasty trivia
Finely chopped anchovies can be added to sauces to give flavour; this is often practised in Mediterranean cuisine where it is a key part of the traditional putanesca sauce often used with pasta
4.
Add the diced peppers and cherry tomatoes. Sweat for a further 5 minutes - do not let the ingredients colour
5.
Remove the chipolatas from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Slice each chipolata into 3
Room for a little one
This chopping step can be completed by an older child with a blunt knife
6.
Add half the cheese to a large bowl and then combine with the vegetables from the pan, the cooked pasta and the chipolatas

Room for a little one
Leave the little ones in charge of grating the cheese and sprinkling over the top of the gratin dishes. Just make sure they don’t nick any while you’re not looking!
8.
Place in an oven set to 160°C/gas mark 3 for 10-12 minutes. Remove and serve immediately
