    Transylmania's Note:

    I made this up the other night. It is GREAT!! Surprisingly great even. In Romania I use a sausage called Cirnati Paprika which is a bit like Spanish chorizo or Portuguese linguica. Use whatever spicy red sausage you can.

      This is great with a tomato or carrot salad.

      Had this last night, a super-easy pasta dish with lots of flavour. I didn't have leeks, so chopped an onion into wedges and sauteed it like that, and I used sliced chorizo for an excellent smoky taste. I did use more water, probably about a cup, to give a nice coating sauce to the pasta. Made for PAC Fall 2008 , thanks, Transylmania!
