A classic Tuscan pasta with all the traditional flavors of the region. Jumbo penne finished in a rustic sauce with dino kale, fennel sausage and sundried tomato. Simple yet exeptional.
Served with garbanzo beans cooked with ham and flavored with rosemary, with a complex touch of melted, pungent Asiago.

In this class we will be covering:

  • Learn not just how to prepare this dish, but start to understand what peasant Tuscan food is all about.
  • Prepare the kale and sundried tomato, use the sausage fat to give flavor and learn how to finish to cook the pasta in the sauce. Always 'Al Dente".
  • Create a rich side for your more complex meal, perfect side for pastas, roasted meat and game.

Davide’s asparagus was so good, I was eating it out of the pan while cooking the pasta. How can each week be better than the last????

Hubby ate all the ham! So my peas are vegetarian. Delicious, none the less! Another wonderful evening with my one star chef group! 😘😘😘

Love that I can make these recipes repeatedly, from my tiny RV kitchen, and that my 6 and 11 year old love them

Chef Davide Cerretini

Chef, Restauranteur, Yelp Antagonizer
Chef Davide Cerretini has been in the restaurant scene in the California Bay Area for the last 25 years. The owner of Cacciucco restaurant (the first Livornese cuisine restaurant in the world), and Chef/owner of the legendary Botto Bistro, he forged his new career and became a celebrity when he waged a hilarious and successful war on Yelp, which led to him starring in the movie Billion Dollar Bully and appearing on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah. His passion and attitude are distinctly Tuscan - he is known, even in the restaurant industry, for his unique approach and distinctive way of interacting with his audience. What he loves the most is to open people's eyes and guide them to a deeper understanding of what Italian food is all about. For him, it's not just about cooking. It's a lifestyle and an attitude. If you cook for yourself you should be able to laugh at yourself!.
