  • 4 sausages
  • 1 leek
  • 1 tablespoon sage
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 28 oz canned tomatoes
  • 1 pound rigatoni
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 servings salt& pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
  2. Chop the onions, garlic, and set aside. Chop the leek (cut in 1/2 lengthwise first & make sure to rinse very well!!) and set aside (separate from the onions & garlic). Chop the sage & set aside separately as well.
  3. To easily remove the casings, lightly slice each sausage lengthwise. Peel off with your fingers. In a large pan over medium/high heat, cook the sausages until they are a nice golden brown. While cooking, break apart the mixture until it looks like ground meat.
  4. Take the meat out of the pan and save it in a bowl.
  5. Add 2 tbsp olive oil and add the sage to the pan. Cook for a minute, add the leeks & cayenne pepper. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and put the meat back in the pan. When the leek is cooked, turn off the heat and keep in the mixture in the pan.
