Servings 4

Ingredients
 

  • 300 grams fettuccini
  • 300 grams italian sausages - crumbled
  • 3 garlic cloves - minced
  • 120 grams mushrooms - sliced
  • 1 tbsp thyme - leaves only
  • 100 grams sundried tomatoes - sliced lengthways
  • 120 grams baby spinach
  • 1 cup light cream
  • ¼ cup stock
  • parmesan - to serve

Instructions
 

  • Boil a pot of salted water and add fettucine. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente.
  • Crumble the sausage meat directly into a pan on medium-high heat. Cook for 5 minutes until it's nicely browned on the outside. Add mushrooms and garlic and cook for a further minute.
  • Deglaze the pan with either ¼ cup stock or white wine.
  • Add sundried tomatoes, thyme and cream to pan. Cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add fettucine directly to the pan, using tongs. This will bring a bit of the cooking water with it to helping the sauce to stick well to the pasta. Stir well to combine.
  • Serve into bowls topped with parmesan.
