An Offer You Can't Re-Fusilli

These days I'm never without a bag of DS pasta in my cupboard (you can buy them for about £1.50 from Morrison's and sometimes Co-op). It's a life saver for lunches to take to work or just a quick meal when I'm starving or can't be bothered to cook. It's so similar to normal pasta that my other half has given up the wheaty version too.

Spag bol is a bit of a faff and you can't buy GF meatballs as far as I'm aware so I had an idea for a shortcut to pasta and meatballs. I have found two different brands of GF sausages so far. Debbie and Andrew's Harrogate 97% sausages which I used to buy before going wheat free due to the fact that there aren't loads of random ingredients in them. The others are some really nice new ones I recently became acquainted with from The Black Farmer

The Black Farmer is not just a brand but a real person called Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones who shows a lot of sympathy for coeliacs. His website even advertises how to get tested for coeliac disease. His daughter is the face of their new chipolata sausages which I used in my quick dinner. Kids can suffer from coeliacs too so it's nice that there is a product out there marketed at them.

So, for my easy dinner, I chopped up an onion, a clove of garlic and four chipolatas and chucked them into a dry frying pan. You can tell how good the sausages are as hardly any moisture comes out of them while they fry. Then i poured a tin of tomatoes and some cheap red wine along with a bit of seasoning before leaving the little chipolatas to it for about 20 minutes.

My wheat eating boyfriend scoffed it quicker than you can say 'Dolmio'.
