Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 20 minutes
    •    Cook time: 35 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    1 tbsp olive oil
    •    1 tsp caster sugar
    •    2 medium tomatoes
    •    2 tbsps tomato paste
    •    8 thick pork sausages
    •    1 garlic clove, crushed
    •    1 celery stalk, finely chopped
    •    1 small red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
    •    1/2 small leek, trimmed, washed, thinly sliced
    •    2 sheets frozen ready rolled puff pastry, partially thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Lightly grease a large baking tray. Cut pastry into quarters. Place pastry squares on a flat surface. Place 1 sausage on 1 pastry square. Roll up to enclose sausage. Press lightly to secure. Place, seam-side down, on prepared tray. Score pastry on top. Repeat with remaining pastry and sausages. Bake for 35 minutes or until pastry is golden and sausages cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, cut a cross in base of each tomato. Place tomatoes in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water. Set aside for 2 to 3 minutes or until skin lifts slightly. Drain. Peel and chop tomatoes.

  3. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add leek and celery. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until leek has softened. Stir in garlic and chilli. Cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add tomato, tomato paste and sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until thickened.

  4. Process tomato mixture until almost smooth. Stir in basil.

  5. Cut each roll into 3 pieces. Serve with basil tomato sauce.
