SPINACH, SAUSAGE, AND CURRIED PASTA BAKE

Directions

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water. Cook for 10-12 minutes until tender. Drain and set aside.

Brown sausages in a hot frying pan, until firm up enough to cut, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and slice into pieces.

Cook curry sauce: melt butter in a saucepan. Add flour and mix and then whisk in half of milk. Keep stirring, while adding remainder milk. Season with salt, pepper, and curry powder. Continue to whisk and cook for 5 minutes until thickened.

Fry onions in the same frying pan as the sausages, stir frying until tender. Add Baby Spinach leaves and toss through other vegetables. Preheat oven to 180°C.

Mix together the curry sauce, sausages, and vegetables, combining well. Tip into a lasagna dish or 4 litre casserole dish. Sprinkle with Breadcrumbs to finish.

Bake in oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling. Serve hot or cold
