I recently tweeted Nigel Slater and asked him for a suggestion as to what I could do with chipolatas, he kindly replied suggesting a cream and mustard sauce with some pasta. Hence my inspiration was fired up and I came up with the following recipe. I decided against cream as I have over indulged the family recently, plus I have always a constant supply of low fat Greek yogurt in the fridge. I also decided that wholegrain mustard and cider were perfect bed fellows for the chipolatas. My husband and children absolutely loved this dish and even if the yogurt does curdle it doesn’t spoil the taste!
If you have any chipolatas left over from a BBQ then they would be perfect for this dish.
As chipolatas and cider are cheaper than cuts of meat and wine I am entering this dish it into Helen of Fuss FreeFlavours “Frugal Food Fridays” event which is being hosted by Jen over at Blue Kitchen Bakes.
First cut up the chipolatas and roast on a baking tray in the oven.
Soften the onions and then add the cider, stock and mustard and simmer for 10 mins.
Roast the chipolatas until golden brown all over.
Add the seasoning and yogurt to the cider reduction and then stir in the sausages.
Now pile on to the tagliatelle and serve with a green salad or some petite pois!
