Sausage, fennel and radicchio conchiglie


You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 2 fennel bulbs, thinly sliced 1 onion, thinly sliced 2 tsp fennel seeds 3 pork and fennel sausages, skins removed (see note) 250 ml red wine 250 ml (1 cup) tomato passata 3 very ripe Roma tomatoes, coarsely chopped ½ radicchio, leaves coarsely torn 1 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus extra to serve 2 tbsp aged red wine vinegar, or to taste 400 gm dried conchiglie

Method

  • 01
  • Heat oil in a wide saucepan over medium-high heat, add fennel bulbs, onion and fennel seeds and sauté until tender and fragrant (6-7 minutes). Add sausage, breaking up into large pieces with the back of a wooden spoon, and sauté until browned (4-5 minutes). Add wine, tomato passata and tomato, season to taste and cook until tomato breaks down and sauce thickens (2-3 minutes). Add radicchio, cook until wilted (2-3 minutes), add parsley and vinegar, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (6-8 minutes). Drain, reserving 60ml cooking water. Return pasta and reserved cooking water to pan. Add sausage mixture, stir to coat well, season to taste and serve hot, scattered with extra parsley.

Note It's essential to use good-quality sausages. If pork and fennel sausages are unavailable, substitute any other kind of sausage.
