Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage with Tomato Cream Sauce over Linguine | by Life Tastes Good #Italian #Sausage #Pasta

Another yummy al fresco All Natural Sausage recipe.  As with all the other recipes we have tried, this one is easy and economical.  I used a red wine I had on hand, and spent under $10 for the remaining ingredients.
I added sliced mushrooms to the recipe because I love them <<smile>>

Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage with Tomato Cream Sauce Over Linguine

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) package al fresco All Natural Pre-Cooked Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon freshly minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup dry red wine
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, with juices
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 1/2 pound uncooked linguine
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh oregano leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Begin cooking linguine in boiling salted water according to package directions. Cook until al dente. Drain.
  2. While linguine is cooking, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add 1 cup chopped onions and 1 cup sliced mushrooms. Saute for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 tablespoon minced garlic and cook, just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add 3/4 cup dry red wine, 1 can diced tomatoes, sliced sausage, 1 teaspoon fresh oregano and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Boil until reduced a bit. I recommend doing this to taste. When it tastes right to you then you can reduce the heat and add 1/2 cup cream and cook for one minute.
  3. Portion cooked linguine onto 4 warm plates or pasta bowls. Spoon sausage/sauce over pasta. Sprinkle each with Parmesan and garnish with fresh oregano if desired.
