Dude’s Pasta

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
  • Servings: 10


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


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.
