This is a nice transitional dish as we move from late summer into early autumn. We are using Granna Padano, but you can certainly use Pecorino or Parmesan. We are using sweet sausage today, but fennel sausage would be delicious with saffron as would a spicy variety.
Here is an uncomplicated pasta dish loaded with bright fresh flavors. Use a plum tomato or two if you have them on hand. You might want to add a clove of finely minced garlic to the tomatoes. Stack the basil leaves, roll them, then slice them into thin strips.
