Fettuccine with Sausage and Kale


Recommended Posts

3 Tbsp olive oil

1 lb hot turkey or pork sausage, crumbled

½ lb kale, stemmed & leaves coarsely chopped or torn

½ lb dried egg fettuccine

2/3 cup stock

½ cup Parmesan or Romano cheese


Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then cook sausage, breaking up any lumps with a spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes.


Meanwhile, blanch kale in a large pot of boiling salted water uncovered, 5 minutes. Remove kale and drain. Return cooking water to a boil, then cook pasta in boiling water, uncovered, until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta-cooking water, then drain pasta in a colander.


While pasta cooks, add kale to sausage in skillet and sauté, stirring frequently, until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add broth, stirring and scraping up any brown bits from bottom of skillet, then add pasta and ½ cup reserved cooking water to skillet, tossing until combined.


Stir in cheese and thin with additional cooking water if desired. Serve immediately, with additional cheese on the side.


Serves 4 – 6.
