Creamy Sausage and Rocket Spaghetti

When I saw a recipe that involved sausage and cream, I was a little bit concerned. It certainly isn’t the most natural pairing. I was keen to try this recipe though, as it’s not often you see a recipe for rocket that’s not just as a garnish or part of a salad so wanted to see what it was like cooked.

This it the perfect midweek dinner for spring/summer – light but still filling. And the rocket is a great touch, and a brilliant contrast to the meatiness of the sausage.

Recipe adapted from BBC Good Food – I found the original was a bit bland so added more rocket, seasoning and chilli.
