Pasta

Spicy Sausage and Tomato Pasta

Pasta is, of course, a staple of Italian culture. In this recipe dried pasta, cooked in the oven, absorbing the tasty picante sausage sauce that surrounds it makes a super, simple and delicious meal. Pieces of pasta that poke above the sauce will be a bit 'al dente' which gives this dish a bit of bite and, as always, good quality sausages make all the difference.
