Pasta And Wors Recipe

Pasta And Wors Recipe

This one pot African style pasta and wors recipe is quick, flavorful, and family – friendly. Easy enough for any weeknight.

Made with pan – fried fresh sausages (knows as boerewors, thus why the name, wors) and uncooked pasta and cooked in a savory tomato sauce that’s seasoned to perfection in just 30 minutes including prep time.

The authentic African wors and pasta calls for boerewors. A popular coarse grained fresh sausage with a distinct flavor/ taste, eaten throughout southern Africa. But I have made this pasta and wors recipe with fresh sausages I could get my hands on and it still turned out delicious.

Ingredients used to make one pot sausage and pasta

  • 300 g (2/3 lbs) fresh sausages
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 large bell pepper (capcium)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 200 g (7 oz) pureed tomatoes
  • 700 ml (about 10 fl.oz/ 3 cups) hot water
  • 250 g (8.8 oz) pasta, uncooked
  • vegetable oil to brown the sausages
  • freshly ground black pepper and chili flakes to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chutney

*if you don’t have chutney, go ahead and use about 1 teaspoon sugar, just to create an overall more balanced stew.

How to make wors stew with pasta

Cut sausages into chunks and peel and mince garlic and onion. Rinse bell pepper, cut it in the middle, remove the core and dice it.

In a large saucepan or pot, heat 2 tablespoons sunflower oil (or whatever you prefer) over medium heat and brown the sausages. Don’t overcrowd the pot, otherwise the meat won’t brown. Remove the sausages from the pan and set aside.

In the sausage drippings, add the onions, bell pepper and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes or until soft. Add tomato paste, thyme, paprika, ginger, chutney/ sugar, salt, black pepper and chili flakes and cook for another minute.

Stir in pureed tomatoes and water and bring to a boil. Then add pasta and browned sausages and stir well. Bring to a boil and let cook for about 12 minutes. Keep stirring in between, so that the bottom of the pot doesn’t burn.

Serve immediately.
