Rigatoni with Classic Red Sausage Sauce

Rigatoni with Classic Red Sausage Sauce

Serves 4

Sweet and spicy sausages are mixed in our Classic Red Tomato Sauce to make an irresistible meat sauce for this rigatoni. Hearty and filling, this recipe is sure to become a fast favorite.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • ½ large onion finely chopped
  • ½ tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 4 sausages removed from their casing (a mixture of half sweet and half hot works nicely)
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 1 jar Classic Red Tomato Sauce
  • 1 lb. rigatoni
  • ¼ cup of heavy cream
  • ¼ cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • Basil leaves for garnish

Method

  • In a heavy cast iron Dutch oven on medium heat, add the olive oil and butter and sweat the onions and rosemary until translucent (about 10 minutes).
  • Add the sausages and mix well with the onions. Use a wooden spatula to break up the sausage meat.
  • Cook until the sausages are no longer raw – about 5 minutes.
  • Add the wine and cook for another 5 minutes until most of the wine has evaporated.
  • Add the Classic Red Tomato Sauce and reduce to a simmer and let it bubble slowly away for a minimum of 3 hours.
  • Fill a large pot with water and salt generously.
  • Cook pasta according to the directions on the package and then drain.
  • Add the drained pasta to the sauce and then add the cream and cheese and stir well over low heat for a couple of minutes.
  • Serve with extra grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves.
