Linguine with Sausage, Greens and Egg Pan Sauce
  • 12  ounces  fresh or 8-oz dried linguini pasta
  • 12  ounces  uncooked organic sweet or spicy Italian sausage links, skins removed (1 lb)
  • 1  clove  garlic, finely chopped
  • 4  egg yolks
  • 1/2  cup  whole milk, half-and-half, or light cream
  • 1/2  cup  freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 3 ounces)
  • 2  teaspoons  finely shredded lemon peel (from 1 lemon)
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 2  cups  coarsely chopped mustard greens or turnip tops
  •  Handful  fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley leaves
  • 1/4  cup  shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano

1. Bring a large pot of generously salted water to boiling. Cook linguine according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Return to pot, cover to keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, for pan sauce, cut sausage in little blunt-edge meatballs. In a large skillet cook sausage over medium-high heat about 5 minutes, until golden brown all over, adding garlic during last minute of cooking time. Set aside sausage.

3. In a medium bowl whisk together the egg yolks, milk, 1/2 cup grated cheese, the lemon peel, salt, and pepper. Add to the pot with the pasta. Add the hot sausage and chopped greens. Toss all ingredients together, letting heat from pot and linguine cook and thicken egg to a silky sauce. Add 1/4 to 1/2 reserved pasta water to loosen. Toss with the parsley and shaved cheese. Serve immediately in shallow bowls and plates. Makes 4 servings.
