Sausage Pasta with Marscapone
1 medium onion, chopped
a few cloves garlic, chopped (garlic powder is fine too)
1 cup frozen peas
handful of mushrooms
2 Italian Sausages
8 oz Marscapone cheese
While pasta cooks, remove sausage from casing and brown in a skillet with a tiny bit of olive oil to prevent sticking. Add onions and garlic and let them sweat for a few minutes while sausage browns.
Add peas and mushrooms...
Add 3/4 cup (about 8 oz) of Marscapone cheese. Let it sit and melt a little before you fold it in.
Yummy... add a little pasta water to thin it out if you think its too thick. I thought it was just right!
Add salt to taste and toss with Farfalle Pasta. Here I added some black pepper and crushed red pepper because I felt like it :)
This recipe was definitely a winner in my book - easy, yummy, and the kids even picked at it. This definitely makes enough for 4. Next time I would brown the sausage then remove it and let it drain to omit some fat, saute the onions, garlic, peas, and mushrooms separately and then add the sausage back in.
