• 500g coarse sausage
  • 1 tbsp Kerrygold Original Irish Butter
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 500g penne pasta
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 500g pureed tomatoes
  • 750-1000ml vegetable broth
  • 120g Kerrygold Mature Cheddar
  • Salt & pepper
  • Basil


Peel the onion and garlic and dice both finely.

Remove the sausage from the intestine and roll it into small balls. Heat the butter in a large saucepan and fry the sausage balls in it all around. As soon as they are coloured, remove them and saute the onion and garlic for 2 minutes.

Put the pasta together with the tomato paste, the tomato puree and about 750ml vegetable stock in a saucepan. Add the meatballs and a little salt and pepper, stir and let the pasta simmer covered for 18-22 minutes. Stir in between and add more stock if needed.

As soon as the pasta is al dente, season with salt and pepper and garnish with basil and cheddar to serve.
