Ingredients

  • 200 g fusilli pasta
  • 6 low fat chicken sausages*
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 400 g tin of reduced salt baked beans in tomato sauce
  • 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 175 g grated low fat cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 175C Fan.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil then add the pasta and cook as per packet instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • Whilst pasta is cooking grill the sausages under a medium grill, or use a George Forman grill, once cooked lay aside to cool. Then cut the sausages in half and each half into 4 quarters.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Then add the pepper and sauté stirring for a further 2 to 3 minutes until soft.
  • Stir in the baked beans, chopped tomatoes, mustard, and bring to a simmer. Add the drained pasta and sausage pieces then season with some salt and black pepper. Turn the contents into an oven proof dish. Top with the grated cheddar cheese.
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes until the cheese has melted on top and is golden coloured.
  • Serve immediately with a mixed leaf green salad.

Notes

* I prefer to use chicken sausages, but you can use any low-fat sausages.
**This dish is suitable to freeze.
