    One of our favorites. The lemon is essential.

    This recipe is all about the sausage. It makes a lot; the recipe says 4 to 6 servings, but with more than a pound of dried pasta, I'd say it was at least 8 servings. This would be a good weeknight meal.

    This is such a great, fast dinner to throw together, a real crowd pleaser. Add a simple vegetable dish or salad, and dinner is done. I like to use bulk house made chicken or turkey sausage from PCC, the local organic foods shop.

    You will want to go with almost the quantity of pasta he suggested, maybe slightly less. The sauce is mostly about the sausage so make sure you get good sausage. We used lamb and it was very good.

    p. 72 - Absolutely delicious! I wholeheartedly agree w JO, much of the flavour in this dish comes from the sausages so a high quality product is imperative. We adored how the bright lemon flavour complemented the hearty sausages and, countered their richness. The chilies provide just the right amount of subtle heat. I did worry that the sauce might be too acidic given the inclusion of wine and lemon juice but after the short simmer, all flavours were balanced and just perfect in our estimation. I used Farfalle and I didn’t thoroughly drain it before adding to the pan of sausage. We found that the water that clung to the pasta to be adequate to aid in distributing the sausage mixture so I didn’t feel the need to add any of the pasta water I’d reserved. We served w some freshly grated parmesan. Aside from being so delicious, this dish is super easy and comes together in no time. I look forward to making this again. Photos here:

    Great everynight dinner. I mix it up by adding spinach or broccoli or sundried tomatoes, it's good every way.
