On a cold, snowy day, there is nothing better than a hot and hearty meal, such as this tasty and simple recipe. Ingredients such as garlic, onions, sausage, dried pasta, and dried beans are available year round, making this a great sustainable meal for any season. It has been adapted from a delicious recipe courtesy of  Giada De Laurentis of the Food Network.

Sausage and winter greens pasta

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb pasta
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 small onion (Waynes Organic Garden in Oneco, CT has great onions and garlic!)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 lb crumbled  hot Italian sausage (Hurricane Farm in Scotland, CT offers a great crumbled pork sausage)
  • 2 cups of cannelini beans (canned or dried beans that have been cooked)
  • 6 cups fresh, pre-washed greens (whatever is available - spinach or kale are especially good)
  • 2/3 cup mascarpone cheese (regular cream cheese would work in a pinch)
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions:

  1. Boil water and cook pasta according to directions on package.  Drain pasta and reserve. 
  2. Chop onion and garlic. Add olive oil, onions and garlic to large saute pan.  Saute over medium high heat until soft.  
  3. Add sausage and cook until browned.  Add beans and greens.  Saute until greens have wilted. 
  4. Remove from heat and add mascarpone cheese.  Add pasta and toss until well-mixed.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
