Papparedelle con Salsiccia, Arugula Salad with Shaved Parmigiano and Crostini

There’s something really gratifying about finding a new recipe for something you’ve just run out of ideas for. In this case, I’d caved in to Costco’s Premio Sausage packages. My son, Alex, tells me there are 12 step programs for Costco shoppers and I may be one step away. But the sausages are identical to the ones at my much more expensive butcher and priced very affordably. Unfortunately, your purchase still leaves you staring at all that sausage and wondering if selling them at the San Gennaro Street Festival is an option.

           Then I came across this recipe from a restaurant in Bernardsville NJ called “Eccoqui”, the translation of which is “Here I am”. Apparently, no, they are not because I cannot find a current listing for the place in neither Zagat’s nor Open Table. If a reader wants to clue us in on Eccoqui’s status, please do. However, their recipe for Pasta with sausage, tomatoes and mushrooms has survived them and gets rave reviews. And for good reason. It’s a very satisfying dish with plenty of flavor and texture.
           I’d gotten my papardelle from DiPalo’s of Stracciatella Pizza fame. I cooked half the fresh noodles the first time I served this dish. I froze the rest and we had them a couple of weeks later. They were perfectly fine.


We paired the Pappardelle with a simple arugula salad topped with shaved Parmigiano cheese and some garlic rubbed Crostini. The recipes for these follow this one:
