What’s Cooking – Spaghetti with Eggs and Sausage

Out take on Spaghetti with Eggs and Sausage

Out take on Spaghetti with Eggs and Sausage

This recipe is our twist on the famous Spaghetti with Eggs and Bacon. We had a lovely Italian sausage and it seemed like the perfect dish to put it in.

So, let’s start with your ingredients list:

  • 300g good quality sausage – we used Lucanica with Chilli from Delicatezza
  • 400g spaghetti (fresh is best)
  • 3 eggs (free range of course)
  • 75g Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 gloves of garlic, squashed slightly
  • Salt and pepper to taste

IngredientsAnd now step by step instructions on how to make it 🙂

Take a large saucepan, fill it with water and bring it to boil – this is where your spaghetti will be cooked, once the water is boiling. Add some salt and a splash of olive oil, the salt to enhance the flavour of the spaghetti and the olive oil to stop it clumping together.

Preparing your sausages

Prepare your sausages by cutting them into a 1cm cube sized shapes, or thick slices if you prefer would work I guess, depending on the original shape and size of your sausage.

Cooking your sausages

In a frying pan heat the olive oil and start frying your sausages and add the garlic, fry nice and slowly, until they have a healthy brown glow. Remove and discard the garlic. Keep your sausages on a very low heat until you are ready for them.

Spaghetti

By this time your water should be boiling away nicely, so it is time to start cooking your spaghetti. Pop the spaghetti in and let it soften and bend and slip into the water itself, don’t be standing there pushing it if you’re using dried spaghetti, the fresh stuff is already bendy so just pop it in.

While your pasta is cooking it is time to mix all other ingredients.

Mixing up all other ingredients

Warm a large mixing bowl and break the eggs into it. Beat them slightly. Add in the Parmesan cheese and stir it in. Add salt and pepper. Stir till you have porridge like consistency.

Mixing pasta with eggs

As soon as your pasta is done, drain it quickly and add your egg mix into it (do not worry about uncooked eggs, heat from your spaghetti will cook them for you). Toss the contents of your bowl until the egg mixture has covered all the spaghetti evenly.

Final stepsTime to serve

Add your sausage and again toss until evenly distributed and you are done!

Serve with some salad leaves drizzled with your favourite dressing and maybe some chewy garlic doughballs. Enjoy!

    Oh, wow, a fantastic take on spaghetti alla carbonara. I prefer yours, very nice. Bravissima! We have lots of sausages here in Sicily, the traditional ones are made with fennel seed, they are delicious!

  2. This looks really delicious! Never heard of that type of sausage, will look out for it

  3. That looks fab and easy to make too. Must add to the menu plan

  4. Ooh great idea! We are veggies, but you can get some great flavoured versions of exotic sausages now (tho I am sure they are not a patch in the real thing…..damn my principles!!) and I think my kids would love the idea of sausage and egg pasta!

  5. This looks delicious – definitely something that would go down well in our house!

  7. This looks brilliant and i’m sure my son would eat this. There’s 3 of his favourite foods there so looks like a winner to me!

  12. Quality ingredients make all the difference don’t they? I’m veggie but I think this could easily be turned into a veggie version too!

  14. Looks amazing. Pretty sure my lot would wolf this down.

  15. this looks tasty and really easy to make!

  16. Always a winner anything with pasta. Going to look our for one of those sausages. I’d add a mountain of chilli flakes for heat mad OH.

  17. What a great idea. So simple! My kids would love this one.

  18. Kizzy Bass

    That sounds amazing, I think the whole family would enjoy that.

  19. Plenty of pepper, that’s what I like to see! We no longer add oil to the water for pasta – it just sits on the surface and doesn’t coat the spaghetti. If you have a big enough pot filled with water and keep it at a rolling boil while you cook the pasta stays agitated and doesn’t clump. After you drain it is when we toss in some olive oil.

  20. Oh wow how fabulous! Looks super easy to make and I bet it tasted delicious too 🙂

  21. Love the idea and the fact my children would probably eat this. Good clear pics and instructions. Commenting for myself and on behalf of BritMums and thanking you for taking part

  22. cassfrugalfamily

    Such a simple idea – we do something similar with bacon and it’s delicious x
