Penne With Sausage Ragu


For the last 10 days it was just Shyama and I at home as hubby is gone to US, he will be back tomorrow ( yupiieee). We have been doing lot of things together cycling to a book fair in a town which is 10 km from our home, then going for shopping together etc....... and in the evening by eight both of us go to my inlaws place and then MIL open up a bottle of wine and we talk and gossip and just before midnight we walk back home ( don't worry guys , out place is only 900 m from their place, thanks to GPS i know that ).
So as it is the last evening just two of us we will be doing the same again.

Now to the recipe, as i have mentioned before one magazine i look forward for getting every months is my Taste Italia Magazine and this recipe is form this months issue.
S and I loved the pasta dish.
I tweeked according to my taste.

2 tbsp of olive oil
1 onion chopped
500 gm sausages, skins removed and crumbled ( i used less sausages)
1 tsp chillie flakes or according to your taste.
1 garlic chopped
150 ml dry white wine
200 ml hot milk
400 g tin tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp sugar
50 ml stock ( used chicken)

Add the oil in a large pan over a medium heat add the onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and chillies. Add the sausages and cook untill slightly dry and crisp. Add the wine and cook untill evaporated.
Add the milk and once creamy, add tomatoes, tomato puree, sugar and stock and reduce the heat to a low and cook stirring regularly for 1 hour or untill thickened and reduced.
Cook the penne pasta, drain toss the pasta into the pan and serve with paremesan cheese.
