6-19-15 Angel Hair with sausage, celery and carrots


I was in the mood for sausage, but not with the usual red sauce

1.     Angel hair pasta – almost any other pasta can be substituted
2.     Italian sausage with casing removed
3.     Celery
4.     Carrots
5.     Onion
6.     Anchovy – 1 fillet finely chopped
7.     Olive oil
8.     Garlic
9.     Fresh basil
10. Chicken broth – about 1/3 cup
11. White wine
12. Black olives – sliced
13. Panko


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over moderate-high heat and add the anchovy, carrots, garlic and onion, and cook until soft.  Add the sausage and cook until it and the vegetables begin to brown.  Add several torn basil leaves and several splashes of white wine.  Stir frequently, and when the wine has cooked off add the chicken broth, lower the heat and simmer until it begins to thicken.  Sprinkle with the Panko while the pasta is cooking. 

Add the pasta to the skillet and mix well and add the olives before serving.  Add pasta water if needed.
