Recipe by Sitka Sound
READY IN: 30mins




  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and cook onions until they start to soften, stirring frequently.
  • Add mushrooms and garlic to skillet. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms soften and onions begin to turn translucent (about 5 minutes).
  • At this point, bring water to boil in a large pot. Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Shoot for an al dente pasta, as it will hold up better in the sauce.
  • Add ground sausage to skillet and, using a spatula, break it into chunks as it cooks. Adjust temperature as needed to thoroughly cook the sausage.
  • When sausage is browned, drain any drippings off of the skillet. Return to medium heat and add drained tomatoes.
  • When tomatoes have heated through, add cream, thyme and rosemary. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to med-low.
  • Simmer until sauce thickens (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat and add cheese, stirring until melted into the sauce.
  • Add cooked pasta to skillet and toss with sauce. Adjust the amount of pasta added to the skillet according to how 'saucy' you like your dish.
  • Season with salt, fresh ground pepper to taste. Garnish with additional grated parmasean and fresh parsley.
