Heat a pan with 2 tbs of olive oil and saute the sliced sausages until cooked ( they should produce some liquid) , add wine to the pan and let simmer slowly.
At the same time, in a pot of boiling salted water, drop the kale and pasta to cook for 10 minutes.
Remove pasta and kale from boiling water ( keep some water in case you need to add it to your mixture) and add it to the sausage mix, let cook together.
Add pasta water to mixture if you don’t have enough water.
Cook until pasta is al dente or as you like it.
Serve garnished with grated parmigiano and a drizzle of olive oil
100 gram per person is average portion per person
Olive oil is always extra virgin, cold pressed
Peperoncino is Italian crushed red pepper flakes
Start boiling the water for the pasta before or at the same time as you start making the sauce. The pasta and sauce usually take the same time to cook. Keep some of the pasta water in case you need it for the sauce.
When draining the pasta, retain a cup or more of the water just in case you need to add it to your pasta sauce. If your sauce is ever too thick , this is what you need to add to make it just right.
