Classic Soffritto with Spicy Italian Sausage in Tomato Sauce

Here is a last minute entry for Valentines Day. Have fun and enjoy the day.

Cooking with Candi

Winter cont'd 002 Winter cont'd 005 Winter cont'd 004 Winter cont'd 015 Winter cont'd 017 Soffritto is a mixture of seasonings and finely chopped vegetables, such as onions, garlic, celery and carrots that is sautéed in olive oil and used as a base for many Italian dishes. I added a little red pepper flakes and oregano. This soffritto takes an average sauce to a perfect sauce. I first learned how to use it many years ago on a trip to Italy. Plus what an awesome way to get Joel to eat some vegetables!

We came home from a beautiful ski day up on The Highlands out here in Aspen, Colorado. Very much in the mood for pasta. I had a pound of italian spicy sausage on hand and all of the other ingredients for this delicious sauce. A short tubular pasta is always best for this sauce, Rigatoni and Penne work really well. I happen to have a box of Tortiglioni noodles which work really well.
