Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the vegetables

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil for the pappardelle.
  • In a small bowl, soak the sun-dried tomatoes in very hot tap water until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry.
  • Trim the root end from the leek; cut the leek in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Rinse well.
  • Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, gently smash the garlic cloves.
  • Trim the stem ends from the Brussels sprouts; thinly slice the sprouts.

2

Brown the sausage; cook the vegetables

  • Cut a small corner from the sausage packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausage and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the leek, garlic, Brussels sprouts, and as many red chile flakes as you like, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
While the sausage and vegetables cook, prepare the lemon and boil the pappardelle.

3

Cook the pappardelle; finish the dish

  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon.]
To the pot of boiling water, stir in the pappardelle and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the pappardelle, reserving ¼ cup [½ cup] pasta cooking water.
To the pan with the vegetables, stir in the pappardelle, sun-dried tomatoes, reserved pasta cooking water, and 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] lemon juice and cook until the sauce is thickened slightly and the sausage is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon zest, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pasta to individual bowls, sprinkle with the feta, and serve.
