Sausages, overcooked pasta and our Bloody Bens Bloody Mary Mix. What’s not to like?!

Ingredients

  • Splash of Olive Oil
  • 10 Sausages
  • 2 Onions, Peeled and Diced

  • Heat the oil in an oven proof shallow casserole dish over a medium high temperature.
  • Brown sausages all over and then remove to a plate.
  • Slide in the chopped onions and fry slowly for 5 minutes. Crank up the heat to high and add the red pepper and aubergine. Continue to fry for 3 minutes.

  • Slide in the chopped tomatoes and let them break down a little.
  • Stir in the orzo.
  • Pour in the Bloody Bens Bloody Mary Mix and water.
  • Pop your sausages back in.
