This light, creamy pasta is a show-stopper, topped with mushrooms duxelles and savory sausage.
1 pound fresh pasta, such as this week’s pappardelle
1 pound Italian sausage
¾ cup F&L duxelles
2-3 tablespoons butter
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 tablespoons freshly-chopped parsley
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Freshly-grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish
1. Bring a large pot of heavily-salted water to a boil. Drop in pasta noodles and cook according to package directions, or until al dente, about 6-7 minutes. Drain and toss with 1 tablespoon each of butter and olive oil. Set aside.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the Italian sausage until browned and no longer pink on the inside, breaking up into bite-sized chunks with the back of a spoon. Add in the pasta noodles, and the toss in the remaining tablespoon each of the butter and olive oil, then the duxelles and fresh parsley. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
