  • 1 lb. penne pasta or medium shells
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 Italian sausages, meat removed from casings and crumbled

Step 1

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling, salted water until it is al dente; drain.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet. Add the sausage meat and brown over moderately high heat about 5 minutes, until no pink remains. Add the wine and simmer, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom, until liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

Add the cream, mustard and crushed red pepper and simmer for 2 minutes.
Remove the skillet from the heat.

Pour the pasta into a serving bowl, add the sauce and the basil, and toss to coat. Serve at once.
