Serves 4
Ingredients

2 tablespoons EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 pound sweet sausage with fennel, removed from casings
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained
3 stems rosemary, leaves stripped and chopped
1/2 cup white wine
1 large head escarole, washed and coarsely chopped
A few grates nutmeg
1 cup chicken stock
1 pound rigatoni
A few handfuls grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
2 tablespoons butter

Preparation

Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta.
 
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with EVOO, 2 turns of the pan. Add sausage, brown and crumble; remove. Add onions and garlic to the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and stir until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the beans, rosemary and white wine, and scrape up drippings on the bottom of the pan. Wilt greens into the beans; season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add stock and reduce heat to medium-low.
 
Salt pasta water and cook rigatoni 1 minute less than package directions. Reserve about 1 cup starchy water then drain.
 
Add sausage and pasta to skillet, and toss with half the reserved cooking water and a couple handfuls of cheese for about a minute. Add more water and the butter in small pieces and toss to coat and combine pasta with sauce. Serve with more cheese on top.
