Preparation:

Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add penne to water and cook for 11 minutes or until al dente; set aside 1/2 cup pasta water and drain.

Step 2

Trim root ends from ramps and rinse bulb ends under water, removing any loose skin. Separately, cut bulbs and leafy tops crosswise into 1/2-inch slices.

Step 3

Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove casings from sausage and crumble into pan. Add chopped bulbs to skillet with sausage and cook, stirring to break up sausage, for 3 minutes or until sausage are almost cooked through.

Step 4

Add leafy tops of ramps to skillet and stir in. Cook for 1 minute or until wilted and tender. Stir in salt and red pepper flakes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 5

Stir together reserved pasta water, yogurt and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large serving bowl. Add pasta and sausage mixture to bowl and gently stir to combine. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and serve immediately.
