How to make sausage pasta bake

1. Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sausages and cook for 4-5 minutes, until browned.

2. Add the pasta sauce, half-fill the jar with water and rinse out into the pan. Simmer for 5 minutes, until the sausages are cooked - it will be quite saucy. Season.

3. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high. Cook the pasta shapes in a large saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and return to the pan.

4. Add the sausage mix and a handful torn fresh basil leaves. Stir, then tip into a large deep ovenproof dish. Dot with mozzarella then grill for 3-4 minutes to melt the cheese. Scatter with basil leaves and serve with garlic bread.
