Ingredients

Instructions

Brown the sausage in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Crush meat into small pieces using a potato masher. Add the bell pepper and onion; cook 5 minutes.

Stir in tomato paste and garlic. Sauté until the paste darkens, 2–3 minutes, stirring frequently so it doesn’t scorch.

Deglaze pan with wine, scraping the bits from the bottom; reduce wine until nearly evaporated. Add tomatoes, anchovy paste, sugar, and pepper flakes. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the ziti. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.

Finish ragu with parsley; season with salt and pepper. Serve ragu over ziti, garnished with parsley and Parmesan.

Brown the sausage over medium-high heat, crushing it with a potato masher to make the pieces finer.
