Now add the white wine and wait until the alcohol evaporates.This might take about 2/3 minutes.

Now stir in the cannonata with a little bit of hot water from the pasta.

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.
