Author: Remo Trotta


  • 300 grams of Spolumbo’s Spicy Italian Bulk Meat
  • 250 of penne (or pasta of your choice)
  • 1/2 cup of white whine (can substitute with chicken broth)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of flour
  • cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with juices
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Basil leaves for garnish
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese


1. Boil water in a large pot. Once the water boils, add salt and pasta then cook to al dente.

2. Add the spicy Italian bulk meat to a skillet and cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, until browned. Make sure to break it up and mix/stir occasionally. If you have our Spicy Italian Sausages on hand, these work too, just remove from the casing and crumble into the skillet. Drain fat and set aside.

3. Now add the white wine and minced garlic to the skillet and then sprinkle in the flour. Whisk until the flour is dissolved and be sure to scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Cook on medium-high heat for about 2 minutes until reduced.

4. Reduce heat and add the sausage meat back in as well as the tomatoes and cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste (the sausage meat is already spiced!). Cook the sauce for a few minutes on medium-low until thickened.

5. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and basil leaves. Now it’s ready to enjoy!


You really just can’t go wrong with this recipe. It ticks every box: tasty, hearty and simple to make! If you’re not a fan of spice, feel free to substitute with our Mild Italian Sausage, you just need to remove the casings. This dish is pretty versatile and you can add in other ingredients to suit your preference such as spinach. The basil garnish freshens up this heavy dish.
