Over the years I realized that the best pasta dishes I’ve made were the ones where I didn’t have to use a recipe. Once I’ve learned the 4 basic steps, it becomes easy to experiment with different kinds of ingredients and flavours.
- Step 1. Sauté garlic and onions (if using both).
- Step 2. Add wine (I use white all the time).
- Step 3. Add the remaining ingredients, including the sauce (tomato-based or cream or just plain pasta water).
- Step 4. Garnish with herbs or cheese or anything you can think of.
I love, love chicken sausage, whether fried in the pan, roasted on the grill or over fire while warming up in front of the fireplace during cold, rainy nights. It gave my home-made tomato sauce an extra boost so I’m going to make this again and again and never get tired of it.
