First, prepare the sausages. Crumble the vegan sausage with your fingers into a bowl (this will form your mince). Peel and grate the garlic clove. Warm the sun dried tomato oil in a deep frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the vegan sausage mince to the pan and stir for 3-4 minutes | Add the soy sauce to the pan and stir for 2-3 minutes. Add the oregano and black pepper to the pan and stir for 1 minute. Take the pan off the heat and transfer the mince to a bowl (don’t wash the pan).
Now, prepare the tomato sauce ingredients. Peel, halve and finely dice the onions. Peel and finely grate the garlic. Finely slice the sun dried tomatoes. Trim and coarsely grate the celery. Trim, peel and coarsely grate the carrot.
Add the sun dried tomato oil and olive oil to the pan you cooked the mince in, put the pan on the stove over a medium heat and stir for a couple of seconds. Add the onion and a pinch of salt to the pan and stir for for 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and sun dried tomatoes to the pan and stir for 1 minute. Add the celery and carrot to the pan and stir for 3-4 minutes.
Add the balsamic vinegar, vegan Worcestershire sauce, oregano and chilli flakes to the pan and stir for 30 seconds. Add the tomato puree and stir for 30 seconds. Add the red wine and bay leaf to the pan, stir to combine, turn up the heat slightly and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes to the pan, stir to combine and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent catching.
Now, prepare the pasta, finish the sauce and serve. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions (approx 9 minutes in a large pan of salted boiling water). Add the sausage mince to the tomato sauce, fold to combine, taste and season to perfection with salt and pepper. Add a splash of pasta water to the sauce to loosen. Drain the pasta, add to the sauce and twist with tongs to mix. Transfer the pasta into 4 bowls, garnish with a few basil leaves, season with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast and serve.
