  • Summary

    Lettuce isn't for your salads. Bibb or Boston lettuce works best in this dish -- they won't overpower the delicate taste of the leeks.

    Ingredients

    • 3/4 pound sweet Italian sausages, casings removed
    • 2 bunches leeks (about 3 pounds total), white and light-green parts only, halved lengthwise, cut into 1/4-inch slices, rinsed well, and drained
    • 1/2 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 3/4 pound short pasta, such as lumache or medium shells
    • 4 cups Bibb or Boston lettuce, torn into pieces
    • Grated Parmesan, for serving
