Heat it up for 2 min. Check the saltiness of the sauce and adjust if needed, because sausages and cannonata are already salted. Ground some black pepper and your sauce is ready.

Meanwhile, you cook your pasta in 2 lt of boiling water with 15 gr of salt for 12 min al dente. Add to the pan with the sauce and stir in on the hob.
