The original recipe (from a Sainsbury’s magazine) specifies good quality pork sausages, but here at Blakey Towers we use vegetarian sausages; so feel free to use your favourite kind too.

  1. Set a large pan of salted water over heat to bring to a boil.
  2. Heat a frying pan, cut each sausage into 5 chunks and cook them over a medium high heat for approximately 10 minutes until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onions for 5 minutes, add the garlic and fennel seeds and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. At the same time, cook the penne in the boiling water for 8 - 10 minutes or until tender.
  5. Drain the pasta and return to the pan with the sausages, onion mixture, crème fraiche, rocket and seasoning; heat together for a couple of minutes before serving.
