Story
I'm not sure why I always think of making this dish when I have sausage that needs to either be cooked or pitched. I hate to waste food so I try to do something with it - I don't really care for smoked sausage - this was just left in the freezer and I figured it was time to use it or loose it... I've been trapped into making this dish a few times in the past and for some reason I never remember that I don't really like smoked sausage with pasta - I'd make the dish just ditch the smoked sausage... :) Nikko
At times we are forced to use up the foods that are lying for a long time in our refrigerator. There are just two options either to throw them or use them. Nikko is just using up the smoked sausage; he is making an easy pasta with smoked sausages. And the toasted pine nuts come as a crunchy surprise. The chef himself is not a fan of this combination but yes, those who like it will actually love them and make again and again.
