- 1 lb pasta, radiatore, farfalle, pipette all work well
- 1 lb ground Italian sausage
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 cup dry white wine

- 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 cup shredded or shaved Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a rolling boil. Add the pasta, stirring to prevent sticking, and cook according to the package directions until al dente. Drain the pasta, toss with the olive oil, and return to the pot. Set aside.
While the water heats up for the pasta begin the rest of the meal. Add the sausage to a large skillet, and cook- stirring & crumbling- over medium high heat until cooked through. Drain the sausage and return to the skillet.
Stir the garlic into the meat and saute for a minute, or just until fragrant. Pour in the wine, stirring, and allow it to simmer until almost all of the liquid's cooked off.
Stir in the onions, salt & pepper, and red pepper flakes, and cook just until wilted- about 2-3 minutes.
Transfer the sausage mixture to the pasta. Toss until evenly combined. Add the cheeses, stirring until completely melted and evenly combined.
Salt and pepper again, if desired. Serve the pasta immediately.
