Country Sausages with Mashed Potato and Pesto and Sugar-Snap Peas

Sorry for the long absence of posts, but I am flat out broke and in the process of selling my house. I have been eating ALOT of spaghetti and Bangers and Mash, not exactly inspiring.But I felt it was time to give you guys another entry.

First off, I really like both bangers and mash, and spaghetti (in all its forms), but I hate the lack of variety in my diet right now. So I decided to experiment with the classic bangers and mash dish.

Last week I made some pesto and I served it with (you guessed it) spaghetti.

Pesto is really easy to make, delicious and cheap. All you need to do is roughly blend up fresh basil, lemon juice, sugar, olive oil, garlic, and nuts (I used almonds, but any nut will do). DON'T over blend it. It should be rough in texture, a paste not a soup.

Last night I decided to flavour the mash with the pesto.
It was fantastic, The flavour really complemented the sausages far better than ordinary mash did. I will definitely be doing this again.


  1. Nice idea on adding the pesto, clever and tasty.

  2. Wow, great idea. Wonderful photos.

  3. Very often it's my breakfast. It's very tasty and nutritiously.
