Red sauce is my love language and if you’re coming over for dinner, I’m probably making you a version of this pasta. Sweet n Spicy Tomato Sausage Ragu is one of my back-pocket recipes. It’s tomato-y, savory, luscious, and hearty from caramelized Italian sausage. It’s just balanced out with sweet and fresh notes from fennel, basil, and chilies. It also comes together with *very* casual cooking techniques in about an hour, though it tastes like it’s been simmering all day. Since it leans so heavily on basic staples, you can think of this recipe as the year round cousin of my seasonal Summer Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes + Basil. Make it for a dinner party! Or make it on a weeknight. Or on a cozy Sunday. Put on some music, pick out a good red wine, and get in the kitch for a nice little vibe.
