An easy recipe that combines the sweet flavors of Italian sausage with the underused but delicious herb sage. Pair with a salad of arugula and fennel for a wonderful Italian meal.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 pound dried farfalle pasta
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 (12-ounce) package sweet italian sausage, cut into 1/2 " slices
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method: 
Cook pasta to desired doneness, drain and set aside. Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sausage and cook until onions are softened and sausage is browned, about 7 minutes. Pour in wine and stir, loosening up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add tomatoes and simmer 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, and stir in beans, sage, salt and pepper. Cover, and cook until beans are heated through, about 5 minutes. Toss with the cooked pasta and top with Parmesan. Pass additional Parmesan at the table.
