It’s the pretty celadon green casserole dish in these images that inspired this recipe. Though this isn’t typically how I create recipes, I love when it happens.  Normally I select the dish, pan, plates, etc.,  based on what I’ve cooked or want to cook.  Not the other way around.

I think a traditional Sardinian pasta dish usually includes saffron and sausage.  And by “I think,” I mean it’s an educated guess.
