    to make sausage, fennel and pesto pasta you will need:
    • 500g pasta
    • 6 sausages, skins removed
    • ½ tsp fennel seeds
    • ½ tsp black pepper
    • 1 red onion, sliced
    to make sausage, fennel and pesto pasta you should:
    • cook the pasta according to the instructions, towards the end of the cooking time take half-a-mugful of the pasta water for later on
    • meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over a medium high heat, sling in some oil and chuck in the fennel seeds, cook for about 30 seconds
    • add the onion and saute until it softens, about 5 minutes or so
    • mash the sausages the best you can with a fork and chuck into the pan, stir quickly to make sure it stays as broken up as possible – it doesn’t hurt to get a potato masher and smash things up a bit
    • add the black pepper, reduce the heat and keep stirring every now and again – don’t worry if bits stick to the bottom of the pan – that’s good
    • stir the pesto into the mug of pasta water and add to the pan and use it to scrape off any bits on the bottom of the pan
    • add the drained pasta to the pan and stir so it’s coated evenly in the pesto sauce and the sausage is mixed in
    • serve
