On Sundays, DH and I like to enjoy a nice pasta meal! I will start off the morning by listening to the Italian House Party on the radio like my grandmother used to years ago! She would get up nice and early and begin cooking her dinner around 12pm. Sunday’s were always the days she would have an early dinner and I like to try and do the same! I wish she was here today to make some of her chicken cutlets and eggplant for me!
I came across this recipe on the food and wine website some time ago. Being a picky eater, its hard to find meals that I can make for both of us without having to prepare that much seperately. With the exception of the sausage, I prepared everything together.
It didnt come out as flavorful as I would have expected, but it was still very tasty and DH loved it! The recipe didnt call for any tomato sauce, but I like to enjoy my pasta with a nice sauce so I added some sauce and ricotta to it. If I made this again, I would probably saute some onions and garlic to give it the additional flavor.
