This comforting pasta dish uses the classic British flavours of Cumberland sausage and leek. We've used shaoxing wine to flavour the dish, a type of Chinese rice wine, which cooks out any alcohol, so it can be enjoyed by the whole family!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Creamy Sausage & Leek Pasta

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Slice the Cumberland sausages open and carefully squeeze the sausagemeat into the pan and cook for them for 5 min or until slighly golden in colour, breaking it up with a spoon as you go

2 Creamy Sausage & Leek Pasta

Meanwhile, boil a kettle 

Trim then wash the leeks carefully to remove any grit from between the leaves, then slice finely

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

3 Creamy Sausage & Leek Pasta

Add the leek to the sausagemeat and cook for 10-15 min or until the sausages have browned and the leeks have softened 

Once done, add the garlic to the pan and cook for 1 min further

Add the shaoxing wine and cook for 2 min further or until it's evaporated 

Transfer the cooked sausagemeat and leek to a plate and keep the pan 

4 Creamy Sausage & Leek Pasta

Meanwhile, add the conchiglie pasta to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the pasta for 8-10 min or until cooked with a slight bite (or done to your preference)

5 Creamy Sausage & Leek Pasta

Meanwhile, grate the cheddar cheese



6 Creamy Sausage & Leek Pasta

Return the reserved pan to a medium-low heat with 15g [30g] butter

Once melted, gradually stir in 15g [30g] plain flour and cook for 1 min, stirring constantly

You should end up with a sandy textured, honey coloured paste - this is your roux

7 Creamy Sausage & Leek Pasta

Whisk 200ml [400ml] milk gradually into the roux

Cook for 3 min, stirring continuously, until a smooth fairly loose sauce forms, then remove it from the heat and stir in the cheddar and clotted cream - this is your cheesy sauce
