Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta until al dente; drain and return to the pot.
In the meantime, bring a large skillet to medium high. Add the sausage and brown all over, crumbling with a wooden spoon, about 8 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Back in the pan, add the oil and bring the heat back to a medium-high. Add the onions and carrots; sauté until they start to soften, 6 minutes. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper; sauté another minute or two. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
Add the sausage back to the skillet. Then add the tomato sauce and stir to combine. Add the milk, reduce the heat and simmer about 5 minutes, until slightly thickened.
Off the heat, add the pasta, spinach and Parmesan cheese. Toss toss toss to combine and wilt the spinach, 2 minutes. Toss in another small pinch of salt and pepper. Taste it. Sick, huh?
Divide and conquer.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
