That is: penne with sausage, walnuts and cream. It sounds so much more exotic in Italian.
The day I made this dish I wasn’t looking for anything exotic. I was just needing something, anything in fact, for dinner. Sometimes, when you have lots of cook books, it is harder to find something to cook than if you have only a few. It is a bit like when you have a limited wardrobe – it doesn’t take long to figure out what to wear but, when you have several wardrobes of clothes, the decision is significantly harder.
