  • 4 pork sausages diced into 2.5 cm chunks
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 small courgettes (zucchini) peeled into wide strips
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 200 g tinned tomatoes chopped
  • ½ medium red onion sliced
  • ½ tsp dried chili flakes
  • 50 g mushrooms sliced
  • 120 ml chicken stock


  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over a medium/high heat. Add the diced sausage and cook until browned all over.
  • Add a second tablespoon of olive oil and reduce the heat. Add the onion, garlic, oregano, mushrooms and chili flakes. Stir well to combine, cooking until tender and fragrant.
  • Add the stock and tomatoes and stir well, loosening any caramelisation at the bottom of the pan. Simmer for 10 minutes to reduce the sauce.
  • Whilst the sauce is cooking, heat the remaining olive oil in a large pan over a low/medium heat. Add the courgette spaghetti, season and cook briefly, tossing in the oil until just tender.
  • Toss the spaghetti with the tomato sauce to serve.
