1 tbs olive oil
4 (about 400g) Woolworths Gourmet Beef Sausages with Cracked Pepper & Red Wine
1 brown onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, peeled, cut into 2cm pieces
1 small celeriac, peeled, cut into 2cm pieces
1 tbs chopped fresh rosemary leaves
625ml (21/2 cups) beef stock
2 x 400g cans diced Italian tomatoes
375ml (1 1/2 cups) water
115g (1 cup) dried small shell pasta
1/2 bunch broccolini, trimmed, cut into 4cm lengths
1/3 cup shaved parmesan or pecorino
Chopped fresh continental parsley, to serve

Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the sausages and cook, turning occasionally, for 4 minutes or until browned and just cooked through. Transfer to a plate.

Reduce heat to low. Add the onion to the pan and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the carrot, celeriac and rosemary, and cook, stirring often, for 3 minutes. Add the stock, tomato and water. Bring to the boil. Simmer for 3 minutes. Add the pasta and simmer for 12 minutes or until the pasta is almost tender. Add the broccolini and simmer for 2 minutes or until bright green and tender crisp. Thickly slice the sausages and stir into the soup. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Ladle the soup among serving bowls and top with the parmesan and parsley.

The pasta absorbs liquid on standing, so if you’re making this soup ahead, add more stock and water when reheating, or cook the pasta separately and add it to the soup just before serving.
