Sausage Penne Pasta With Feta

Pasta is one of the most versatile meals you can make. You can whip up a great pasta dinner using just a few ingredients.

I used lamb sausage in this recipe but you can use pork sausage, chorizo or bacon instead. The penne can also be substituted with your favourite pasta.

An easy pasta dish with sausage and feta in a tomato sauce.


  • 1 pack penne pasta

  • 4 lamb sausages

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

  • 200 g Rosa/cherry tomatoes, chopped in half

  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs

  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar

  • feta cheese

  • 1 handful fresh basil

  • salt and pepper to season


  • Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil over high heat. Cook pasta in boiling water until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Keep 1/2 a cup of the pasta water.
  • Fry the onion and garlic in a large saucepan until golden.
  • Add the mixed herbs, salt and pepper.
  • Slice the sausage into 1 inch pieces and add the pan with the onions.
  • When the meat is cooked, add the baby tomatoes and tinned tomatoes. Add the brown sugar and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Once the sauce has reduced and the tomato has cooked, add the pasta along with the 1/2 cup of pasta water.
  • Stir well until all the pasta is coated with sauce. Add the basil and feta.
  • Season with salt and black pepper and serve while warm.
