  1. Made this with Heck Italian sausages, It was a few more WW points than 8, as the pasta was that on its own, but it was delicious.

  2. Made for the first time today using quorn sausages. Added a dash of soy sauce and a squirt of tomato ketchup to taste. Very enjoyable and fed the family on a budget.
