fresh pasta with sausage and mushrooms

This was a good quick pasta for a weeknight meal.  We liked the comfort food feel of it but both of us thought it wasn't spectacular.  I don't cook with chicken sausage much but I bought these coq a vin ones from a great charcuterie place in town and it was really tasty.  (oyama sausage if anyone is visiting must try their buffalo pepperoni!)

We probably wouldn't make this again as we have a bunch of other weeknight pasta dishes we liked better.  If I did make it again, I'd probably add some garlic, pancetta bits, a sliver of cream and finish with would really up the calories though!!
