  • 1 lb sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • nutmeg, freshly ground
  • 1 lb bow tie pasta, cooked
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, roughly chopped (for garnish)


Heat large skillet over medium high heat and brown sausage, breaking up with the back of a spoon. Add mushrooms, garlic and onion and cook until softened, add a bit of olive oil if needed. Add tomatoes, simmer until thickened. Add cream and simmer. Salt and pepper to taste.


Toss pasta with sauce. Just before serving add a bit of nutmeg and the freshly chopped parsley.


Great with crusty bread and your favorite Beaujolais.


Alternate recipe: Omit the cream and nutmeg and add second can of tomatoes and 1-2 teaspoons of sugar to taste. A little veal stock paste is always wonderful as well.
