Pasta with Sausage and Red Grapes

Forget spaghetti - try this yummy grown-up version (sub the sausage for turkey or soy sausage to make it even healthier!)

Pasta with Sausage and Red Grapes

photo: epicurious.com


6 ounces mild Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch chunks

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon plus 1/4 teaspoon salt (preferably kosher), divided

2 cups seedless red grapes

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more to taste)

10 ounces whole-wheat orecchiette (or other short-cut pasta, such as farfalle openne)

2 tablespoon grated Parmesan

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (or 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil)


Set a large pot of water to boil. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat, stirring and breaking up, until well browned, about 15 minutes. Transfer sausage to a paper towel. Add oil to skillet; return to medium heat. Cook onion and garlic with 1/4 teaspoon salt, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add grapes, broth and pepper flakes; increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until grapes soften or burst and liquid thickens, about 10 minutes. Return sausage to skillet and stir; turn off heat. When water boils, add remaining 1 tablespoon salt and pasta; cook as directed on package. Drain pasta, add to skillet, and turn on heat to high. Cook, stirring, until sausage is hot and pasta is coated with sauce, 30 to 60 seconds. Divide pasta among 4 bowls; sprinkle each with Parmesan and parsley before serving.
