Sluttishly Savoury: Spicy Sausage Student-Style Spaghetti Sauce

I have a shocking confession to make. This weekend I was ... wait for it ... hungover. I know, I know, it's unheard of for a Slut to partake of the evil liquor, but it was my friend's birthday and there was gin and cocktails and dancing and ... well, there's no excuse, of course. But, my penance for partying came sadly on Sunday when I was cruelly rendered home alone with little in the way of supplies and a desire for some seriously hearty food.

No kidding. Carb-o-rama.

I had to delve deep into my mind (and into my cupboards); remembering those heady student days when you spent approximately £7.66 a week on food and about £766 on booze.

The result? Something delightfully simple, delightfully spicy and delightfully delicious.

You'll need:
  • Two frankfurter sausages

  • Handful of peas (fresh if you can, frozen if you have them, tinned if you are a real student)

  • Handful of sweetcorn (as above)

  • Tin of tomatoes (cherry for us, Tesco Value for the students)

  • 2 or 3 cloves of garlic

  • One small onion

  • Splash of olive oil

  • Chili (one or two, depending if you intend to try and sweat your hangover out or not)

  • Squirt of tomato puree

  • A good pinch of oregano (no excuse not to have this, student or not)

  • Spaghetti (you cannot get away with tinned with this one!)

Make it!
  • Heat your olive oil in a deep saucepan or wok. You can wish you didn't feel nauseous from too much gin whilst you do this, if you want (I did).

  • Once the oil is hot, add the garlic (finely chopped) and onions (ditto), and let them gently cook.

  • Add the chili (again, finely chopped) when the onions are starting to melt a bit and the garlic is browning slightly.

  • Cook this up for a few minutes then add the tinned tomatoes and puree. Mix well and leave to simmer for about five minutes.

  • Boil a pan of lightly salter water. When the water is boiling add al slug of olive oil and add the spaghetti.

  • Add the oregano, mix, then chuck in the peas, sweetcorn and frankfurters (cut into chunks).

  • Let this all cook up together for about five minutes. Drain your pasta and serve.
