If you’ve seen (or heard of) Ina Garten’s creamy sausage pasta, then you’re probably as eager as we are to taste-test the recipe. After all, the Barefoot Contessa, 75, has never let us down in the past.
Ina Garten’s Creamy Sausage Pasta Recipe Puts a Boozy Spin on a Classic Pink Sauce
In the episode (see above), Juliette made the recipe while sharing fun facts about Garten. (Did you know she previously worked at the White House?)
Juliette began by cooking the pasta and sausage before diving into the sauce. “It smells so good,” she said. “I topped it off with more parmesan cheese because I love parmesan cheese.”
She immediately noted the flavor profile is similar to pasta alla vodka, but Garten’s version has a unique boozy twist. “It’s like a pink sauce with sausage,” Juliette explained. “But you can kind of taste the wine a little bit, like a little sweetness from the wine.”
Juliette even compared Garten’s dish to her all-time favorite recipe, Selena Gomez’s Hearty Pasta. So, which pasta reigns supreme? Keep scrolling for a complete ingredient list and watch the episode above for a step-by-step tutorial.
