      Suggested low fat or vegetarian version: Replace the sausage with chickpeas by first processing 1 can (19 fl oz) to the same consistency as hummus. Mix in with the tomato sauce. The chickpeas make the sauce slightly creamy tasting! This recepe is easy and bachelour friendly! Impress the ladies with your cooking skill.
