DIRECTIONS

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