What is Tagliatelle pasta?

Tagliatelle pasta is a thin noodle pasta made with semolina flour and eggs.   A very lightweight pasta that cooks us quickly and tastes like it’s homemade, makes this an awesome dish!

Tagliatelle with Fresh Tomato Sausage Ragu…

Surprisingly, this sausage ragu is not our usual Sunday ragu where we usually cook the sauce for hours like our mom’s classic bolognese.

This ragu is simmered in less time, and it is much lighter in texture and in flavor. Besides, it works beautifully with tagliatelle noodles.

And for the final touch to this savory dish,  just sprinkle with some freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese on top.  Delish!


Cook’s Notes…

  • Sweet Italian sausages or spicy sausages can be used with this recipe.
  • However, I prefer using Italian sweet sausages because they are mild in flavor, and I can control the amount of heat I want in this dish, with the amount of crushed red pepper flakes to enhance their flavors.
  • Do not overcook the noodles, or you will have mushy pasta. It is best to under-cook them, or until they are almost done.

Cooking Items I Used…

At times, I prefer to order my ingredients and even kitchen gadgets online, don’t you?

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 12-ounces Tagliatelle pasta, any Italian brand
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves - finely chopped
  • 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1 pound ( 16-ounces) ground Italian sweet sausage (about 4 links, casings removed)
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste or 1/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1-pint cherry tomatoes - halved
  • 1/4 cup red onion- thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • bunch freshly chopped basil leaves- divided
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp. (additional) extra-virgin olive oil ( for the cooked pasta)
  • optional: 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, for serving


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until golden color, about 1 minute. Add the ground sausage and crushed red pepper flakes and cook until browned, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  2. Add lots of fresh basil (reserve some basil to garnish) stirring for 1 minute. Then add in the tomato paste and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Next, pour in the wine and simmer until it evaporates about 2 minutes. Turn off the heat. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings.
  4. Cook tagliatelle pasta in salted boiling water until it's al-dente, or according to the package directions, but it's best to cook the pasta 1 minute less than it states on the package. Reserve 1/2 cup of cooking liquid, drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
  5. Transfer the sausage ragu to the pot with the tagliatelle pasta. NEXT, toss in the cherry tomatoes and red onion, and drizzle in 1 to 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. (Optional: you can add in 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, this will give is a zing more fresh flavor to this dish). If the pasta seems a little dry, pour in some of the reserved water.
  6. Toss all together until well combined. Serve with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and more fresh basil on top.
  7. Serves 4

I remember my Mom when I was little, she used to cook delicious pastas every weekends and it’s since then that I started to develop my craving for the food! I tried to cook it myself but it doesn’t taste the same way that my Mom made. I’m on vacation next week and I will try to do these recipe’s by myself. Hopefully It will taste good though, I really don’t have any confidence when it comes to my cooking.
