Fresh Pasta with Sausage & No Mushrooms

By Pielove, member

February 1st, 2009

This recipe packed amazing flavor, with little fuss and very few ingredients.  Mushrooms were omitted in consideration of the kiddie palate-- too bad, as I love mushrooms.  Next time I am adding a side of roasted shrooms.  Ordinarily I would never have made this, as it seems quite close to our usual spaghetti with sausage in marinara.  However, this (while not a completely different beast) was novel yet appealing.  Surprisingly, many of the ingredients were difficult to acquire in our neighborhood stores, which cater to Polish and Latino ethinc groups.  I would not have had rosemary, but for the plant on my windowsill, and I used fresh pasta from the Korean mega-grocery.  The rosemary was an inspired addition-- not enough to overpower, but enough to make this different from "the usual."  Another keeper.
