Creamy Mushroom Pasta With Sausage


As you may already suspect by now, I love pasta - it may even be safe to say that I enjoy all food Italian. I had concluded many years ago when I visited Rome twice in a short span of 3 months, that one has to be really unlucky to get bad food in Italy.
I look forward to July when I would be vacationing in Turino and Milan.

In the meantime, I am happy to whip up a quick and tasty pasta dish in my humble kitchen.


Originally a vegetarian recipe featuring just mushroom, I tried to perk it up with sausages.
The white wine cuts through the creaminess to keep the dish refreshingly light. I am now totally enamoured with cooking with cream and white wine. You can find this similar pairing in my last pasta dish, Spaghetti with Creamy Garlic Prawns which was equally delicious.

There is really nothing much more to say about this easy everyday concoction. I leave you with the photos and the recipe. Bon Appetite!

Creamy Mushroom Pasta With Sausage
250g. Spaghetti
100g. Sausages sliced
60ml. Olive oil
600g. Swiss brown mushrooms, sliced
2. Garlic cloves
125ml. White wine
300ml. Cream
3tbsp. Finely chopped Italian parsley
30g. Grated Parmesan cheese

1. Cook pasta to al dente and set aside.
2. In a frying pan fry sausage until cooked.remove and set aside.Heat olive oil in the same pan and fry mushroom for 3 minutes until softened. Add crushed garlic cloves and fry until fragrant.
3. Add white wine and simmer until 50% of liquid has evaporated.
4. Add cream and chopped parsley. season with salt and pepper.
5. Add cooked spaghetti from (1). Toss well to coat. Add sausage and serve with grated Parmesan cheese.

Hi, Pasta is my favorite!! Can you tell me what cream you use?

tigerfish said...

I am actually less of a cream-based pasta person. However, once in a while, there will be a craving lingering. :P

Janine said...

turino - one of the places I've been hoping to go in the near future! i too enjoy using white wine in creamy pastas, and coupled with some sparkling red wine - heaven on a plate :]

Hi Jocelyn : I just used normal whipping cream. (fresh cream)

Love creamy pasta like this!

I agree about Italy - can't beat it! The only place the food wasn't stellar - in my experience at least - was Venice. It was touristy and overpriced in a lot of places so you really had to look for the local gems.

This pasta dish look delicious thought - love the addition of sausage!

Is there a non-alcoholic substitute for the white wine? This dish looks incredible, but I don't consume alcohol (at least not knowingly).

Shirley @ Kokken69 said...

Hey Memoria, Yes, you definitely can substitute. I am guessing a chicken stock would be great!
