This Pasta with Sausage and Arugula is very easy to prepare and makes a beautiful presentation. I prefer to use spicy Italian sausage for extra flavor.
1 Pound Italian sausage, casings removed (My family prefers the flavor of spicy Italian sausage)
2-1/2 Cups heavy cream
1 cup parmesan
3 Generous handfuls fresh arugula
1 Pound dried pasta, cooked to al dente
salt and pepper to taste
I tried this Pasta with Sausage and Arugula for the first time at a tiny restaurant near our house. The bold flavors of the spicy Italian sausage and arugula are all the seasonings you need for this dish. I prefer a pasta called "Casarecce," but any pasta of your choosing will work. I think you'll like this and hope you make Pasta with Sausage and Arugula a frequent star at your dinner table.
