Pork Sausage & Red Onion Pasta Bake

Pork Sausage & Red Onion Pasta Bake

This is comfort food at its best. It doesn’t have to cost an arm or a leg either in order to be tasty. What I particularly liked was the sweetness of the onions that came through. Although it is a bit of trouble to make, it is so worth it. Did I mention Neil prepared […]
