Ode to Tuscany-pasta with a Spanish wine sidekick, hah!

I'm going to be honest: this pasta was TO DIE FOR. We ate all but two lone rigatoni (but I think T ate them while doing dishes). Anyway, I will post this recipe (entitled Em-i-lis' Ode to Tuscany) but had to share the in-progress pics. Think: garlic, onions, sweet Italian sausage, preserved lemon, toasted fennel, kale, mascarpone. And y'all, if you have not had the Muga Reserva Rioja, it is just so delicious. You must go get some. You can almost chew it but in a velvety, lovely way. Bene, buono!
