Cook pork sausage
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then pork sausage.
  • Cook, breaking up pork sausage into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**
  • Carefully drain and discard excess fat.
  • Season with salt, pepper and Zesty Garlic Blend.
Cook penne
  • While pork sausage cooks, add penne to the boiling water.
  • Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min.
Cook sauce
  • Add broth concentrate, crushed tomatoes, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) sugar to the pan with pork sausage.
  • Reduce heat to medium.
  • Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce starts to thicken, 6-8 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Make olive tapenade
  • Meanwhile, cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Drain, then finely chop olives.
  • Add tomatoes, olives and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a small bowl. (TIP: We love using extra virgin olive oil in this tapenade!)
  • Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
Assemble ragù
  • When penne is tender, reserve 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) pasta water.
  • Strain penne, then return to the same pot, off heat.
  • Add sauce, half the Parmesan and reserved pasta water to the pot.
  • Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.
Finish and serve
  • Divide pork sausage ragù between bowls, then top with olive tapenade.
  • Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over top.
  • Sprinkle chili flakes over top, if desired.

If you've opted to get pork sausage, cook it in the same way the recipe instructs you to cook the beef.
