Basil 'n gourmet sausage noodles in plum sauce


Here is a quick and easy dinner recipe, a fusion of sausages and aromatic basil with warming red peppers on noodles. I used regular quick cooking Chinese noodles, you may improvise as you like. 

What you need: Serves5-6
4 gourmet chicken sausages, but into 1/2 inch rings
A handful of fresh basil leaves
1/2 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
1-14oz pack of noodles
2 cups red peppers, chopped into large bits
1 cup white onions, chopped into large bits
2 Tbsp plum sauce
1 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp or more chili garlic sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil


Make the noodles according to the instructions on the pack, or bring a large pot of water to boil. Break the raw noodle cakes into quarters and add them into the boiling water. 

Add salt to taste and a few drops of oil to prevent sticking. In 5 to 6 minutes, the noodles will be soft yet firm, drain them into a colander and run cold water over it. Drain and set aside.

Place a saucepan on medium-high heat. When the pan is nice and hot, add olive oil, immediately followed by the sausages, cook for a few minutes until they brown. 

Add in the peppers and onions; saute for a minute. Pour in the sauces, salt and pepper. 

Give it a quick whisk; add in the basil leaves and saute for just another minute on medium heat. Toss in the noodles, and some olive oil. 

Mix well with tongs. Serve warm along with a good red wine. Enjoy!
