Toasted Penne with Chicken Sausage
Dry pasta lends itself to a variety of cooking techniques, so let's toast it, and then cook it risotto-style to build a creamy sauce from the noodles. I learned this method from a chef who was from Togo but apprenticed in italy. It was what the kitchen staff ate for lunch. He called it "toast pasta." Here, it's presented with browned chicken sausage. Chop and add the Spicy Broccoli Rabe for an impressive and very complete meal.
