Let’s rage with sage! (And also with a medley of other herbs that elicit more demure rhymes.) This entree’s earthy base of red pepper, sage spice, bay leaves, and rosemary sets a fragrant tone for meaty sausage penne that’s sure to please. As the sage sausage sizzles playfully among the herbs, you’ll add red onion, garlic, and olive oil into the mix. Diced tomatoes? Add them too. Things are really heating up–can you feel it? With a dash of red wine, inhibitions evaporate. Now’s the time to drizzle Tabañero’s Extra Hot into your simmering sauce, catapulting the flavor from sensual to downright sinful. Heavy cream and parmesan cheese round out the satisfying spices of the sauce so that every bite of pasta is saturated with flavor. So, are you ready to get a little spicy?
