    400g Waitrose Lumache Rigate
    375g pack No.1 Free Range 12 Chipolatas
    1 large red onion, cut into wedges
    8 fresh sage leaves
    1 tbsp olive oil

    3. Drain the pasta and return to the pan. Add the sausages and onions, along with the arrabbiata sauce, and stir together.

    4. Tip everything into a large ovenproof dish and spoon over the crème fraîche. Tear the mozzarella, scattering it all over the pasta, then sprinkle with the Parmigiano Reggiano. Bake for 20 minutes until the sausages are completely cooked through and the cheese has melted and started to turn golden. Leave to stand for a few minutes before serving with a green salad.
