This is a quick and simple recipe with very few ingredients – and you probably already have all, or nearly all, of them in the cupboard already. It’s a great meal to make for when you want something quick but hearty and filling, and don’t want to fill up on junk food.

Leftovers should be fine to reheat for around three days if kept in the fridge, or around a month if frozen.

Serves: four people.

Cost per person: £0.43 (price based on Tesco Value ingredients).


  • 300g pasta
  • 1 large onion
  • 8 small or 4 large sausages
  • 2 cans (400g each) chopped tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tsps mixed herbs
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


1) Cook the sausages according to the instructions on the packet and set aside.
