Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
• 1 box/package of multi-grain pasta (or your favorite)
• 1 lb. Turkey/Apple/Cinnamon sausages
• 1 can Chicken or Vegetable Broth
• 4 oz. Mascarpone cheese
• 8 oz. wild mushrooms (black trumpet; porcini, Portobello, crimini or shiitake)
• 2 Tbsp. shallots
• 1-2 cloves garlic
• 1/4 tsp. thyme
• Salt and pepper to taste
Sauté the shallots and garlic in olive oil. You want to add flavor, but not overpower the mushrooms. You can use more if you want, but I would use less seasoning and allow the mushroom to shine. Set aside. Cook the sausages; set aside.
Clean, chop and saute the mushrooms in butter and olive oil until well done; add salt and pepper to taste. Add the sauteed shallots and garlic. Add the can of broth, and heat through; stir in the mascarpone. Slice up the sausages and add to the mushroom mix. Add the thyme.
Cook your pasta, and serve with the mushrooms and sausages. Pour a glass of Muns Vineyard Pinot Noir to enjoy with your dish.
