Chew on This: Penne with Mushrooms and Chicken Sausage

27 Jun

I recently pinned a delicious recipe and I couldn’t wait to try it. I have cooked it twice now. The second time it turned out better, I think I perfected the changes I made to the recipe. One reason I like this recipe so much is it is easy and uses ingredients I already had in my kitchen. I have made a couple easy changes from the original recipe to make it a little bit more simple, but if you want to see the original recipe see it here.


Penne with Mushrooms and Chicken Sausage

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 Onion finely chopped

1 lb Chicken Sausage (sweet or spicy)

1 package of Button Mushrooms

1 tsp Rosemary

1 clove crushed Garlic

1/3 cup Dry White Wine

3/4 cup Chicken Broth (add more if needed)

1 package Multi-Grain Penne Pasta

1 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

Parsley to garnish

Take large frying pan and heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in onion and saute until soft. Add in sausage breaking up with a fork, cook until no longer pink. Add in button mushrooms, rosemary, and garlic. Stir until mushrooms are soft. Add in wine and boil until liquid evaporates. Add in 3/4 cup of chicken broth stir occasionally until liquid is thick.

While sauce is cooking, cook your pasta.

Drain pasta and add to fry pan with sausage mixture. Stir until pasta is coated. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.

Serves 4.

This recipe is SO delicious and you can easily substitute the type of sausage and mushrooms to create your own unique dish.


Hope you enjoy!!

    Great recipe – appreciate the lighter sauce vs. a cream sauce. Added some kale and chard for some color. My children really enjoyed this, also.
