Creamy Mushroom Pasta With Sausage

As you may already suspect by now, I love pasta – it may even be safe to say that I enjoy all food Italian. I had concluded many years ago when I visited Rome twice in a short span of 3 months, that one has to be really unlucky to get bad food in Italy.
I look forward to July when I would be vacationing in Turino and Milan.In the meantime, I am happy to whip up a quick and tasty pasta dish in my humble kitchen. 

Originally a vegetarian recipe featuring just mushroom, I tried to perk it up with sausages.
The white wine cuts through the creaminess to keep the dish refreshingly light. I am now totally enamoured with cooking with cream and white wine. You can find this similar pairing in my last pasta dish, Spaghetti with Creamy Garlic Prawns which was equally delicious.

There is really nothing much more to say about this easy everyday concoction. I leave you with the photos and the recipe. Bon Appetite!
