EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Rigatoni is short, fat, tubular pasta. It’s easier to serve and eat than spaghetti. Turkey Italian sausage is available in hot and sweet varieties. Hot turkey sausage gets its spice from red pepper flakes. Sweet turkey sausage has a stronger fennel flavor.

Freeze the sausage links for 20 to 30 minutes for easier slicing.
