Penna with Sausage and Ricotta
Penne with Sausage, Ricotta, and Greens
Adapted from Lidia Cooks From the Heart of Italy, by Lidia Bastianich
Here’s yet another dish from my Lidia cookbook. I love this book! The dish in the book is called Shepard’s Rigatoni, and uses rigatoni noodles, but I had penne so just used what I had on hand. This recipe is great because it mainly uses ingredients that keep for a while in the refrigerator and pantry– sausage, ricotta, and pasta. I added in the dark greens. I felt it needed more green than just the basil, but you can definitely leave the dark greens out. This is a rich pasta dish, and super easy. Great for a quick weeknight meal.
