with Italian sausage and leeks
Ingredients for 4 people
- 1 box Barilla® Gemelli
- 1 pound pork sausage
- 1 ea leek
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup white wine, 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- Salt and black pepper to taste
1Remove the outermost leaves from the leeks and wash the leeks under running water to remove any dirt. Cut (the white part only) into thin slices. Cut and remove the casing from the pork sausage.
2Heat the oil in a pan over high heat and add the sausage, cooking until it has browned completely. Add the leeks, cook for three minutes, add the white wine and continue to cook until the liquid has been reduced by about half. Adjust the salt and pepper and remove from the heat.
3Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water for the time indicated on the package.
4Drain the pasta, dress with the sauce prepared as above and the butter and mix thoroughly.
5Top with grated cheese and garnish with parsley before serving.
6Fusilli pasta can be used instead of the gemelli.
