How to prepare pasta with sausage
We take a saucepan and pour some olive oil inside. Now add the white onion after having chopped it and let it fry on low heat. While preparing the sauté, we chop carrot and celery. So when we see that the onion begins to wilt we add the chopped carrot and celery and let it continue to fry everything on low heat. Meanwhile, we remove the sausage from the casing and add it to the sauté, crumbling the sausage very well. In the same way, let the sausage brown and wait until it turns completely white. Then let it all blend with wine. As we’ve already said, wine can be white or red. Let’s wait and let the alcohol evaporate.
So let’s add a glass of boiling water. Alternatively, you can use a vegetable broth. Finally we add the aromas that we have previously chosen. Chopped parsley or rosemary. Let it cook for 15-20 minutes.
