Cast your vote for Sausage Pasta

Ok, this is a very easy recipe that's ready in less than 25 minutes and uses only 9 ingredients from your campervan store-cupboard. All you need is a pan to boil the pasta in; a sharp knife to chop the onion and garlic; a pan to fry the onion and garlic; and a cheese grater to finely grate the Parmesan. Oh, and maybe a colander would be handy to drain the pasta, but if your pan has a lid it's not totally necessary.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: Serves 2 People


  • 4 Sausages
  • 200g Fusili Pasta
  • 450g tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 Onion (chopped)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (chopped)
  • A splash Red Wine
  • 1 Cube Beef Stock
  • 1 squirt Tomato Ketchup
  • A handful Parmesan


  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and boil the spaghetti for 10 minutes until cooked. Add salt if required. When cooked, leave to stand in the hot water.
  2. Heat the oil over a medium heat and fry the onions and sausages gently until the sausages are browned on all sides. Carefully slice the sausages into roughly 1cm chunks and add in the chopped garlic. .Fry for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Add in the chopped tomatoes, beef stock, ketchup and red wine (note: if you have any sugar, add 1 teaspoon to bring out the flavour of the tomatoes). Cook for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Drain the pasta and stir into the hot pan. Cook for a further 2 minutes and then stir in half of the grated parmesan.
  5. Serve and and sprinkle over the remaining parmesan.

And there you have a simple, tasty pasta meal that makes a simple meal to prepare in the home and is an ideal meal idea to use when camping. All you need is a camping stove, a couple of pans and some cutlery. Give it a go next time you go camping. Bon appetite!
