Pasta alla Monzese


  • 500g Penne Rigate
  • 350g Bratwurst (saussage)
  • 250 ml cream
  • 60 g parmesan cheese
  • saffron
  • salt
  • pepper
Peel the saussages, and form small balls from the meat. Place in frying pan, and briefly brown the outside. Then add the cream and reduce on low heat for a couple of minutes. In the meantime, start boiling the penne. Using a tiny bit of the boiling water, dissolve the saffron and add the yellowish orange liquid to the meat in the pan. When ready, strain the penne and add them to the sauce in the pan. Add salt and pepper to taste, and finally add the parmesan cheese. If too dry, very slowly add some of the water from the pasta to the pan.
