Creamy Sausage and Ramp Pasta

It's a grey day that feels like it's always just on the verge of raining & I've been tried all day. All I want is something easy for dinner that is creamy, warm & comforting.
Creamy Sausage & Ramp Pasta
Ah, that hit the spot.

Creamy Sausage & Ramp Pasta

4 - 6 oz pasta
1/2 T olive oil
8 oz bulk Italian sausage
10 ramps
2/3 c half & half
1/4 c paced, grated parmesan cheese
salt & pepper

Cook pasta according to directions. When cooked drain & set aside.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage & cook through. Slice the ramps; bulbs, stems & leaves, keeping the leaves separate from the bulbs & stems. Add the bulbs & stems to the skillet & sauté for 2 -3 minutes until slightly softened. Add the half & half and cheese. Bring to a simmer & stir for 1 minute. Add the cooked pasta & ramp leaves. Stir until the ramp leaves wilt slightly, you still want them to have a little crunch, and everything is heated through. Season with salt & pepper.

2 servings

Never go can go wrong with a good comfort meal when it feels like rain.

Nice use of ramps. Still bummed I am having a hard time finding them here.

Ramps are so "in" right now! This dish looks creamy and comforting. Yum.

Giff said...

very nice :) perfect for a rainy day. I've started just seasoning ground pork shoulder for dishes like this instead of buying pre-made sausage so I know exactly what's in it!

Deborah said...

Another ramp recipe - I've got to find some of those!

Grace said...

Giff - We used our own homemade Italian sausage as well, its really the best thing.

Angelynn - Ramps are also known as wild leeks.

I'm amazed at how easy and simple this is! I have never had ramps but might adapt this recipe for one of my worknight dinners!

Lori said...

That sure does look creamy! I just love ramps. I need to go to the woods and pick some. I sure dont want to pay 2 dollars for them again. I wish we had a CSA nearby like you. I love your posts about what is in your cSA box, its like Christmas.

Kevin said...

That pasta looks really tasty! I like the use of the ramps!

MrOrph said...

That looks sooooo good. Aren't ramps the best? Where did you find yours? I actually had to turn to eBay.

Peter M said...

I'm all over this dish...cream, sausage and tasty ramps. I'm glad I finally tried them this year.

This dish was so tasty, and it was quick to prepare. My husband and I made it with ramps that we harvested yesterday in the mountains. Yum!!
