Pasta With Shallots And Sausage

This recipe for pasta with shallots and sausage is part of the Tandy Tuesday pasta day initiated by Cindy. Cindy is a friend who I met through blogging. She has inspired many recipes over the years I have known her.

It is not often that I can find shallots at Woolworths, and so when I do I make sure I buy them. To me this is a staple ingredient in Europe and one I have transported often in my suitcase. In fact, the last lot came all the way from Johannesburg, but I managed to find some locally last week. Dave much prefers shallots to onions as they are milder in taste. I love them as we never need an entire onion for a dish. Unless of course I am making a super huge batch of oxtail. Here is a recipe for Pasta With Shallots And Sausage and cherry tomatoes for colour. I prefer to use shallots as they are sweeter and smaller than onions. Often if I cannot find them we end up cooking the entire onion and setting half aside to use at another time.
