While in Tuscany in search for ideas for their Italian cooking classes and teambuilding cooking classes, the Wickedfood Cooking School team came across this simple, quick and easy pasta recipe.sausage-tomato-fettuccine-ck-x

500g fettuccine
4T olive oil
2-3 Italian sausages
1 red pepper, seeded and cut into strips
1 x 410g can tomatoes, roughly chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh basil (optional)

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat until warm. Add the sausage and fry, turning a few times, until browned all over and cooked. Remove from the pan and slice.
  2. Add the red pepper and tomatoes to the same pan and heat until the mixture simmers. Return the sausage to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Add some fresh basil, if required, at this stage.
  3. Meanwhile cook the fettucine in boiling salted water until al dente.
  4. Drain and turn into a warmed serving dish. Pour the tomato and sausage mixture over and mix through.

Serves 4

Wickedfood cooking school in Johannesburg runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios. Cooking Classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). This team building venue is also popular for corporate events and private functions – team building cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.

Our cookery classes are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests. For corporate groups and teambuilding cooking classes these classes are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
