Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook pasta as package directs.
  2. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water.
  3. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, or until no longer pink.
  4. If necessary, break large pieces apart with a wooden spoon.
  5. Add mushrooms and cook an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Pour in wine, reserved pasta water and black pepper.
  7. Stir in basil.
  8. Remove from heat; toss with pasta and cheese.
  9. Note: For perfect pasta every time, for 1 pound of dried pasta, bring at least 6 quarts of salted water to a boil.
  10. Add all of the pasta.
  11. With wooden spoon, stir once or twice to prevent sticking.
  12. Check at suggested time; if cooked properly, there will be no white inside.
