Here's a hearty pasta dish that will stick to your ribs. It's a mix of well-seasoned pork sausage with a hint of fennel married with a dense, reduced red wine sauce. The wine replaces water or stock, adding additional acidity, balance, character and flavor. Search out a well-seasoned pork sausage sold either in bulk or in casings (you'll need to remove the meat from the casings).Plus: Pasta Recipes and Tips
This was a delicious pasta dish. I prepared it as written and used a dry sangiovese for the wine and a ziti for the pasta. Very easy to make and tastes far more decadent than the sum of its ingredients.
