    Bring out the flavour of pork with fennel seeds and serve in a creamy mustard pasta sauce.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep and cook time: 25 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4

    Ingredients

        •    350g fusilli
        •    2 garlic cloves, sliced
        •    3 tbsps double cream
        •    100g bag rocket leaves
        •    1 tsp wholegrain mustard
        •    1 heaped tbsp fennel seeds
        •    6 good quality pork sausages
        •    1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
        •    2 tbsps grated parmesan, plus extra to serve

    Method

    1. Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Meanwhile, squeeze the meat out of the sausage skins. Heat a frying pan over a high heat and brown the sausagemeat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon while it cooks. Once browned, push to the side of the pan.
    2. Add the garlic, chilli and fennel seeds to the empty part of the pan and cook for 45 secs until fragrant. Stir in the sausagemeat, season and add the cream, mustard and Parmesan. Keep on a low heat until the pasta is cooked.
    3. Drain the pasta, reserving a few tbsps of the water, then tip it back into the pan. Add the sausage sauce and mix, adding some of the pasta water if it needs it. Add the rocket, turn off the heat and spoon into bowls. Serve with extra Parmesan.

    Easy Lamb Chops Recipe

    Tender, flavorful lamb chops don't get any easier than these lamb loin chops marinated in herbs, garlic, and lemon juice, then roasted in the oven, for an easy lamb chops recipe that cooks in about 15 minutes. Feel free to use fresh or dried herbs for this recipe. Add at least 1 hour and 20 minutes to the prep time to include time to marinate in the fridge and then come to room temperature.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes
        •    Cook time: 15 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4

    Ingredients

        •    1 tsp sea salt
        •    2 tbsps olive oil
        •    1/4 cup lemon juice
        •    1 tsp rosemary leaves
        •    4 inch lamb loin chops
        •    1 dash cayenne pepper
        •    2 tsps finely chopped garlic about 4 cloves

    Method

    1. Mix ingredients, except for lamb, in a bowl.
    2. Place the chops in a zip top bag and pour ingredients over chops. Seal the bag, after squeezing the air out, and squish the bag around to get the chops well covered on both sides.
    3. Let marinate in the fridge overnight. The longer the better, but give them at least one hour.
    4. Remove the chops and let them come to room temperature (approximately 20 minutes) before cooking.
    5. While the chops sit out, move an oven rack to the top position beneath the broiler, and preheat the oven on broil.
    6. Place the chops (with the marinade) in a single layer in an oven proof skillet, and place the skillet in the oven directly beneath the broiler.
    7. Broil for 5-8 minutes on each side, using tongs to flip the chops, until they are seared on the outside and register around 145 degrees with a meat thermometer.
    8. Drizzle with the pan juices before serving.
