Notes about this recipe

    I used this as a carbonara base and use the traditional pancetta with peas instead. I was very creamy while it was warm but the sauce disappeared as it cooled. I would increase the cream and prewarm it then toss in separately from egg and cheese.

    Very indulgent, but good! I really liked the sausage meatballs and didn't find them too fiddly to make. partner really enjoyed this.

    Delicious, I would go with 3 egg yolks and a little more cream unless the eggs yolks are huge.

    I agree with fprincess that rolling the sausage into small balls takes a lot of time. I've made this twice, and the second time I dispensed with rolling the sausage into balls and simply cut them into small pieces - but the sausages I had were quite slim. They weren't as tender as the first time, but I enjoy the crunch of sausage skin anyway.

    Rolling the meat out of the sausages into small balls takes a while. Otherwise it's a pretty tasty recipe if using good quality sausages.

    p. 90 - Mar. 2010 – First use of this recipe and quite pleased w outcome. Sauce was satiny and flavourful. I think this rec is only as good as the sausage you use so we used a high quality Italian sausage from the Oliffes. Sausage is a dominant flavour in the final dish. If sausages were cooked a day in advance, this would be a great choice for a quick and easy casual entertaining dish. I’d definitely make this again and I’d likely use spicy Italian sausage for a change of pace.
