DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook the penne until al dente; drain well and do NOT rinse.
  • After you put the water on to boil, remove sausage meat from the casings, crumble, and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add garlic and cayenne and saute for approximately 30 seconds, then add sausage meat to skillet.
  • Cook until sausage meat is no longer pink (about 5 minutes or so).
  • Add cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg to skillet and turn heat to high to bring mixture to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer, gently, until the cream reduces and the sauce thickens a bit; it takes about 10 minutes.
  • Place cooked penne in a large serving bowl (it's nice if you warm it first) and pour sauce over; add butter and cheese to bowl and combine all well.
  • Taste; add more salt and/or pepper if you wish.
  • Sprinkle chopped herbs over top and serve.
