The heartbreaking thing about summer is that not every day can be sunny, especially here in the UK. But don’t worry, we’ve got the perfect dinner to match. This creamy sausage pasta is filled with sweet smokey red peppers, garlic, smoked paprika and fennel seeds along with veggie sausages. Finished with vegan cream and plant-based cheese (as whats better than cheesy pasta) and you’re onto a winner.
