This is a quick dinner idea with lots of tasty, punchy flavours and textures. The pecorino sardo (a hard sheep milk cheese from Sardinia) adds a salty taste which contrasts well with the sweetness of the petit pois and caramelised onion.
This is really easy and will be ready in less than 30 minutes. This would also be good with a bit of fresh chilli thrown in but I need to refrain sometimes from adding chilli to everything!
serves 2-34 good quality pork sausages

1 chopped onion
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 tbs olive oil
100g petit pois
1 tbs chopped sage leaves
1 tbs fennel seeds

pecorino sardo (parmesan would work just as well as a substitute)
salt and pepper to taste
