Instructions

  1. Pop your pasta on to cook, according to the instructions on the packet.
  2. In a large pan, add a drizzle of olive oil and a knob of butter. Once the butter has melted, add your leeks, garlic and celery and cook on a low heat until softened and sweet.
  3. Next, squeeze the sausage meat from its casings and add to the pan. Discard the casings and use your spoon or spatula to separate the sausage meat. Cook until it colours and is nicely cooked.
  4. Add your mixed herbs and stir through. Once combined, add your stock and let this reduce slightly on a low heat, before adding a tub of Elmlea Double, your peas, followed by the Parmesan.
  5. Stir through until everything is creamy and smooth. Give it a taste and season. You might find you only need pepper as the sausages, stock and cheese will add saltiness.
