Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 sausages
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • pinch of dried chilli flakes
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 250g baby spinach
  • 200g spaghetti or rigatoni
  • parmesan, grated, to serve

  • STEP 2

    Add the garlic and dried chilli flakes and fry for another minute. Then stir in 2 tsp of dijon mustard, 100ml of double cream and 250g of baby spinach, and bubble for a few minutes to wilt and thicken the sauce. Season.

  • STEP 3

    Cook the pasta in a large pan of lightly salted boiling water following pack instructions, then drain, reserving some of the pasta cooking water.

  • STEP 4

    Tip into the sauce along with 3-4 tbsp of the cooking water and toss to combine. Divide between two bowls and grate over some parmesan to serve.
