Vigan Longganisa Pasta Recipe

Vigan longganisa is a specialty sausage from the Northern part of the Philippines. The name derives from longganisa, meaning sausage, and Vigan, which is the provincial capital city of Ilocos Sur. This popular sausage is made with ground meat, garlic, and Ilocos vinegar.

Whenever I visit my relatives in Ilocos, I have the chance to enjoy this wonderful local sausage. As a chef, I decided to create a pasta dish out of it. I topped it all off with toasted herbed breadcrumbs to add more aroma, flavor, and texture.

      Hi Liz,

      You may replace the Vigan Longganisa with any garlicky sausage or other sausage available. I am not sure though if this particular sausage is available in UK.

      I read this at first as vegan. That probably just goes to show how much veganism is gaining in popularity. This looks like a tasty dish. I would have to look around for something similar in the UK.
