Linguine with Sausage and Cannellini Beans


I think this is the first recipe I ever made up on my own. Tonight, I dug it out to remake it, update it, and take some pics, and I’m so glad I did.

I made this when I catered my grandmother’s 85th birthday, and she’s now 93. So this was an unexpectedly nostalgic little experience this evening. And yummy.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb Italian pork sausage links
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes drained
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly cracked pepper
  • ½ cup half and half
  • ¼ cup Italian parsley chopped
  • ½ cup fresh grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1 (15.5 oz) can cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • ½ lb linguine

Instructions
 

  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Boil the sausages in the water 2-3 minutes. Remove the sausage from the water and transfer to a cutting board. Leave the pot of water boiling for the pasta. When the sausages are cool enough to handle, slice them into 1/2-in slices.
  • Cook the pasta according to package directions in the same pot of water, to al dente. Drain.
  • While pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned. Add the drained tomatoes and a pinch of salt. Toss, then cook, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes. Add red pepper flakes, pepper, parsley, and cream. Cook, stirring frequently, until the cream is just slightly thickened.
  • Remove from heat, add the cheese and beans, and mix well. Taste for seasoning (at least 1/2 t salt). Toss with the pasta. Serves 4-6.
