Kale and Pink Bean Ragu

Sausage, Kale & Pink Bean Ragu

  Wine Pairing: 2010 Regis Minet Pouilly Fume – $10.  Pale color, vibrant fruit and a nice tension between minerality and fruit.  The lemongrass notes will compliment the lemon/wine sauce, and the acidity will cut through the sausage.  It’s a great basic white wine that drinks well year ’round.
