DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the pasta in salted water until al dente, about 8-10 minutes. About 1 minute before the pasta is done, take about 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid out of the pan before you drain the pasta. Reserve this liquid.
  • Meanwhile, chop the garlic cloves with the coarse salt and smash it into a paste. (This takes away any strong burn of raw garlic.) Mix the garlic with the lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, tomatoes, pepper and oregano.
  • Toss the hot pasta into the lemon-garlic sauce. As you toss the pasta through, add some of the cooking liquid little by little until it forms a sauce, you probably won't need all of the pasta water. Mix in the cheese. Taste for seasoning, add a bit more salt and pepper if you think it needs it.
  • Slice the cooked sausage into bit size pieces and mix it into the pasta. Let the pasta sit covered for 5 minutes to let the flavors mingle.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
