I can’t help but love pasta. I come from an Italian family, with Italian grandmothers, and an English mother who has forsaken her own culinary tradition (can’t really blame her for moving away from English food, right?) and has joined the cult of the Italian. I grew up on Italian food, and am delighted to roll out another Italian recipe today – and from the most authentic Italian establishment around, Carrabba’s.
Okay, so maybe it’s not authentic, but this pasta is darn good. They don’t serve it there anymore, but there was a time, several years ago, when this was the dish to get. I’ve never seen anything like it in any restaurant in Italy, and I’ve been to a bunch. Oh well. The concept is simple – pasta with Italian sausage (non-meat sausage in this case) and goat cheese. The execution is just as simple. This is a great weeknight dinner, quick and easy.
