Baxters Deli Toppers: spicy sausage pasta

A bowl of sausage pasta.

The weather has got noticeably colder of late, so it’s time for some warm-up recipes! This sausage pasta is quick and easy to make and has a spicy edge thanks to Baxters Jalapenos. I find that they give this dish that I’ve been making for years a little more bite and have improved it as a result.

The courgette and runner beans came from my parents’ garden, so it added to the home-made comfort food feel. You could, of course, include different vegetables if you wish. Onions and peppers also go nicely with the other ingredients. This recipe serves two and goes very nicely with a glass of red wine. Just saying!

Preparation time

The preparation is simply a matter of chopping everything up, so you’re looking at five minutes tops.

Cooking time

This will depend on your oven, but it took me around half an hour.


  • Four sausages
  • Two or three teaspoons of Baxters Jalapeno Deli Topper
  • One tin of chopped tomatoes
  • One courgette (chopped)
  • A handful of runner beans (chopped)
  • One handful of coriander (finely chopped)
  • 200g pasta


  1. Pre heat the oven (gas mark 6/electric 200/fan 180) and put the sausages in for 30 minutes.
  2. Pan fry the chopped courgette and runner beans in a little olive oil on a low heat.
  3. Add the Baxters Jalapenos Deli Topper.
  4. Start cooking the pasta on another hob.
  5. Add the chopped tomatoes and coriander and stir regularly.
  6. Once the sausages are cooked, chop them up and add them to the pan.
  7. Drain the pasta and serve immediately with the sausages and sauce.

I hope you enjoy this simple but tasty recipe and I’ll be sharing another one soon.
