  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds mild or hot Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree (from a 15-ounce can)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 1 pound rigatoni
  • Grated Parmesan, for serving


  2. 1. In a large frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking up the meat with a fork, until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove the sausage from the pan. Discard all but 1 tablespoon fat.
  3. 2. Reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook until it almost evaporates, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sausage,tomatoes, and salt. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Add the pepper, parsley, and cream.
  4. 3. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the rigatoni until just done, about 14 minutes. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce. Serve with grated Parmesan.
