Spicy Sausage and Kale with Orecchiette オレッキエッテパスタ、スパイシーソーセージとケール

Spicy sausage and kale with orecchiette pasta by naotakem

A few days into the new year, we got tired of Japanese food so made a simple pasta dish. Sauteėd finely chopped garlic and shallots in olive oil, then added crumbled spicy italian sausage (casing removed), cooked until brown, added some red wine, a bit of tomato paste, and chopped kale. Cooked until kale is wilted, then added Orecciette pasta cooked to al dente and a ladleful of pasta cooking water,  tossed well, then served on a warm plate with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. Paired with a dry red Sicilian wine made with Nero d'Avola.
