Tale of Two ‘Births’

Inspo for this recipe came from one my earliest issues of Bon Appétit magazine – October, 1991. Yep, a good 27 years ago when still a young gal in college.

And here’s the kicker… I still have them. Well, at least most of them. To boot, favorite recipes are indexed in a massive excel file I created while a plump preggo waiting to go into labor with my son, Bryce.

I was done going into work, the house was clean, and the hospital bag was packed. So, I decided to make my recipe finding easier by combing through each issue’s index, and circling every recipe that jumped out.

Then, sat happily at our computer. The next thing I knew, a sortable spreadsheet reflecting 11 years of issues was born.

Timing of completion worked out perfectly. The morning after clicking save for the last line entered, my water broke. 🙂

That was 16 years ago. I still maintain that spreadsheet today and Bryce is now a junior in high school with his driving permit. Can’t make it up, life writes itself.

Making Pasta with Sausage and Fall Veggies

Ironically enough, the original recipe must be old enough not to show up in Google when searching for it! I wanted to link the original since I took quite a few liberties when it came to adjusting ingredient amounts to bring the recipe down to serving six instead of twelve or more. Plus, I added prosciutto, tahini, lemon and fresh herbs for extra flare.

You’ll see from the recipe, basically, everyone gets their turn in the skillet and brought together at the end for culinary nirvana.

The garlic, dijon, and wine give the sauce so much flavor. Fresh sage and thyme bring in the finishing touch along with a generous grating of fresh parm.

Linguine or spaghetti are the best noodles to cling on to all that deliciousness and stand tall with the heartiness of the dish. But, hey, there are no rules here. Dig into what you and your gang love most! Cheers, friends! Kim

  • In a small bowl, whisk the chicken broth, mustard, tahini and red pepper flakes together. Add mixture to the skillet and simmer 8-10 minutes until sauce thickens.
  • Return sausage and prosciutto to the skillet. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring sauce to a simmer before continuing.)
  • Mix pasta and reserved pasta liquid into the sauce. Add the green onions, sage, thyme, and parmesan cheese. Heat through for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve from skillet or transfer to a large bowl. Garnish with extra sage and thyme. Pass extra parmesan separately. Enjoy!

  1. Wow, I’m impressed with your work on creating and mantaining your spreadsheet! I don’t have many magazines (I have a thing for holiday, particularly Christmas editions though), and I’ve marked some festive recipes I would like to try one day with colorful labels, and that’s Ben’s comprehensive reference system haha. And this pasta sounds and looks super comforting and delicious; with so many flavours and textures happening. Great!

    1. Haha! Thanks so much Ben. Like everything else, when it’s what you enjoy, it’s a labor of love that pays off off in personal spades. Keeping track of what you have is an awesome project when things slow down. 🙂
