A recipe for meat lovers, of distinctive tastes and fast food. Tortiglioni with a quick sauce of sausage, fennel seeds and Pdo Sardinian pecorino cheese. I say fast because the sauce can be prepared in 30 minutes. Although, like any gravy, the more you prolong cooking more flavors are balanced and resolute.
Simply sauté the sausage, Add the onion, the concentrate, the tomato, a little wine and cook everything on high heat: the taste is amazing and no one will understand that you have prepared in haste. You can choose between a white wine and a red wine, the second will give more character and more color to your meat sauce.
