Join us at The Dinner Table and to help families reconnect and communicate more effectively.
We want to help families be closer, sharing and loving. The Dining Table is not only an area for eating but a place for gathering, sharing, communicating and where relationships grow.
Here we will share ideas that will help make gathering around the table enjoyable and meaningful for all members of your family and we invite you to share your ideas and what have worked – and not worked for you.

Kids will love this quick, easy and super tasty Sausage Pasta for dinner. Better still and add some chilli to the adult portions for a bit of extra spice.
  • 3 (400g) pork and fennel or italian sausages
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large (200g) brown onion, chopped finely
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 400g rigatoni, penne or other short pasta
  • Parmesan cheese, finely grated, to serve


Step 1
Using a small sharp knife, make a long shallow cut along the length of each sausage, then peel off and discard casings. Crumble sausages into pieces.

Step 2
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add sausage pieces and cook, stirring, until browned all over and just cooked through. Remove from pan.

Step 3
Add onion to same pan and cook, stirring, until softened. Add garlic and cook, stirring, a further minute or until fragrant. Add tomato and stock and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until thickened. Season with salt. Return sausage to pan along with parsley and stir until warmed through.

Step 4
Meanwhile, cook pasta in salted, rapidly boiling water until al dente. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup (125ml) pasta cooking water.

Step 5
Add pasta to sausage mixture, tossing to combine. Add a little of the cooking water, if necessary, to help the pasta and sauce amalgamate. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve.
