Angela Hartnett’s rigatoni with fennel and sausage

A simple, rustic, deeply flavourful pasta dish from the iconic Angela Hartnett is as good as you’d imagine. Fennel and sausage is a natural combination, both of which come together in the tomato sauce. As with all Italian food, the quality of the ingredients is key, so get the best you can.

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, add the fennel and onion and cook for 7 10 minutes until they start to soften. Add the sausages and cook for 3-4 minutes, then pour in the tomatoes and gently simmer for 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
