The opulent décor at Lisa Vanderpump’s latest restaurant, Pump Lounge, is inspired by the time she spent living in the south of France, but the menu is all Italian. One of Lisa’s favorite dishes—which she created with chef Penny Davidi and even cooks at home—is pasta with a classic Arrabbiata sauce, kicked up with sausage.
