If you liked our previous recipe, then you will love the recipe I am sharing with you today. It is a Penner Pasta with sausage and mushroom sauce.
- Prep time: 20 minutes
- Cook time: 55 minutes
- 6 sweet sausage
- 1 and 1/2 ounces of canola oil
- 1 medium size eggplant
- 2 large Porta Bella mushrooms
- 6 medium size vine tomatoes
- 1 medium-size red onion
- 1/2 cup of white wine
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon of kosher salt
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon of parsley flakes
I usually chop up the ingredients as I go but with this dish, I was told from my Zia Antonella to prepare all the ingredients first so here we go. Make sure you wash all ingredients before using, that’ss what she told me, have to love it.
Take the sweet sausage and remove the skin from them and place the meat to the side, than peel the skin off the eggplant and cut it in half the long way and you want to dice up the eggplant to small dice pieces than place to the side, then you take the mushrooms and dice them up to small dice piece also and place to the side ,then in a deep dish you want to dice up the tomatoes, use a deep dish so when you dice it up you keep the juices that come out, it doesn’t have to be small dices, and place on the side, than take the medium onion and cut it in half and chop it to thin 1/4 moon shapes and place on the side, then take the garlic and chop to small pieces not minced though and place to side.
Than over a medium heat place the large deep skillet and place the oil, garlic and the onions and let them cook for 15 minutes but constantly mixing, this is why you need to prepare all ingredients you are going to be constantly mixing.
Than place the meat and the parsley in the pan and let it cook for ten minutes again just keep mixing and as you are mixing you are going to be breaking apart the chop meat to small pieces as it cooks.
Than you add the mushrooms to the pan and again you want to just keep mixing all the ingredients together for ten minutes and continue to break up the chop meat.
At this point you want to start boiling water for the penne pasta which on average takes 20 minutes to cook al dente between boiling water and cooking pasta, once the pasta is ready drain and place back in the pot and place to the side.
than to the pan with all the ingredients add the tomatoes, just keep mixing it for ten minutes, then add the salt, pepper and the wine and mix for ten minutes.
Than let it stand for five minutes, than place a Pasta Server Spoon full of the mix into the pot with the pasta, and mix, than in a bowl make a serving of the pasta, and add some of the mix on top of the pasta, and serve your traditional Penne Pasta With Sausage and Mushroom sauce and enjoy.
