Our Tuscan friends, Cloe and Adam gave us these two recipes. Hers takes 20 minutes, his 1.½ hours.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 small red onions, peeled and chopped
  • 5 Italian spiced, f


In a large saucepan, heat the oil and fry the onion until light brown. Add the crumbled sausage, the rosemary, bay leaves and chilli. Fry together over a high heat, stirring to mash the sausages. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the fat, and continue to cook for 20 minutes. The sausagemeat should become brown and disintegrate. Add the tomatoes, stir and return to the boil. Remove from the stove.<
