Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce, Mushrooms, & Turkey Sausage

June 28, 2011

I don't know if you have made Pioneer Woman's Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce, but it is divine. I got some recipe inspiration from Tasty Kitchen the other day and this is what ensued.

Not the prettiest thing on the planet, but it tastes so good. Even my super picky sister ate it, plus her toddler. Who might I add picked out every piece of sausage like I had contaminated his noodles and handed it to me.

Pasta with Tomato Cream, Mushrooms, and Turkey Sausage
1 pkg Smart Taste thin spaghetti
1 lb turkey sausage
1 yellow onion
1 cup canned mushrooms
2 15 oz cans tomato sauce
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 tbsp basil (dried, use fresh if possible)
Salt & Pepper
1 tsp sugar
3 cloves garlic

Dice onion, slice sausage and add to a skillet on medium high heat. Saute until onion is softened. Add tomato sauce, mushrooms, and garlic. Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.

While sauce is simmering cook pasta.

When sauce is nearly done add salt and pepper to taste, sugar, basil, and sour cream. Combine sauce with pasta and serve.

Smart Taste pasta is probably the only thing I will choose over a whole wheat version mainly because the calorie content is so much lower.
