Ingredients

  • 1 pound dry fettuccine
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 4 hot Italian sausages, casings removed
  • 1 pint red or yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 1 cup arugula, torn
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Preparation

  1. Cook the fettuccine according to the package directions. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion softens, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sausage and cook about 5 minutes, using a wooden spoon to crumble it. Add the tomatoes and cook until the skins burst, about 8 minutes. Stir in the vinegar, salt, and pepper. Add the cooked fettuccine, basil, and arugula and toss gently to combine. Serve in bowls and top with the Parmesan.

    Tip: Vegetarians can omit the sausage. Try adding 3/4 cup Feta cheese to the pasta and greens.
