Chicken And Pea Carbonara


Use your favourite seasoned chicken sausage for this easy-to prepare dish!

Prep time:5 mins

Cook time:20 mins

Serves: 4


  • 400g orecchiette pasta
  • 1½ cups frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 500g chicken and garlic sausages, casings removed and discarded
  • 565g jar Leggo’s Carbonara Pasta Sauce
  • Shredded parmesan cheese, black pepper, grated lemon zest, for sprinkling


Step 1

Cook pasta following packet directions. Add peas to the same saucepan just before pasta is al dente and bring back to the boil. Drain and keep warm.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large non stick frypan. Add sausage meat and cook for 8 minutes or until browned and cooked through, roughly breaking with a wooden spoon.

Step 3

Add Leggo’s Carbonara Pasta Sauce and bring to the boil. Stir in cooked pasta and peas. Serve sprinkled with parmesan cheese, pepper and lemon zest.

Tasty Tip!

Add a little water to ‘thin’ the sauce, if desired after the addition of pasta in STEP 3.
