Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons salted butter
  • 10 Baby Bella or Crimini mushrooms sliced
  • 5 green onions cut into 1" pieces
  • 12 oz Hillshire Farm Beef Sausage sliced into rounds (Eckrich is another favorite sausage brand)
  • 8 oz dry spiral noodles
  • 2 cups water (see note for doubling the recipe)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon coursely ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning Tony Chachere is our favorite
  • 2 cups Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh Italian parsley minced
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Select a large frying pan that has a lid - preferably glass so you can monitor the cooking food.
  • Melt butter in frying pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and stir to coat with butter. Fry, stirring frequently to ensure even browning. As the edges turn crisp and golden add onions and sausage. Fry for an additional minute to heat sausage.
  • Add noodles, water, cream, pepper, garlic and Cajun seasoning. Stir to combine. Cover the pan and bring to a boil. After the pasta mixture comes to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cover. Check the pasta after 9 minutes. If it is not tender, cook an additional 1-3 minutes.
  • When pasta is tender, remove from heat and stir in cheese and parsley. Taste for salt and pepper. Add additional Cajun seasoning for more spice.
  • Serve immediately with steamed broccoli, crusty bread and additional Parmesan cheese.

Notes

Readers suggest that if you are making a double batch of this recipe you should reduce the water.  Use a total of 3 cups water for a double batch instead of 4 cups.
