I’ve often got a packet of sausages lurking round in my freezer as I think they are a great ingredient for a speedy and tasty tea. I often defrost and then remove the skins, crumble and use them in pastas or risottos but this week, wanting to make something a little lighter that I could take to work for my lunch, I decided to give a new soup a go. The result was lovely. Pesto and tomato are one of my favourite combinations and whizzed together with sausages, they make for an overall tasty, fresh and summery soup.
There is nothing better than an oozing, bubbling lasagne but the white sauce that it is usually loaded with is usually enough to send us way over our daily allowance. Using a lower point white sauce (such as my homemade recipe below or my alternative jarred suggestion) can bring the points down significantly.
