Proper Blokes Fusilli

This is a Jamie Oliver recipe. Its the only thing Dan cooks. I wish there were more vegies in it but this is a travesty if I say this to him....


Serves 6


1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp chilli flakes
Zest and juice of 2 lemons
1.5 kg of italian sausages
1 bunch parsley, finely chopped
500g Barilla Fusilli Pasta

1. Grind cumin seeds and chilli together in a mortar and pestle
2. Push the sausage meat out of the skins and brown in a saucepan with 1 tbsp olive oil

3. Add the chilli and cumin seeds and keep browning till the meat is caramelised (approx 15 mins).

4. Add the lemon zest and juice and stir in. Meanwhile cook the pasta till al dente.

5. Add the butter and parsley to the meat then toss with the pasta.
Sausages just have a great flavour and thats the main theme of the dish - the lemon, chilli and cumin actually get cooked down a lot and are there in the background but not overpowering.
