Ingredients
  • Kosher salt
  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 pound sweet or spicy Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 8 -ounce package sliced mixed mushrooms
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Shredded parmesan cheese, for topping (optional)
Directions
  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water, then drain.

  • Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Add the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil to the skillet and increase the heat to medium high. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and rosemary and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Return the sausage to the skillet, then add the cream and 1 cup water; bring to a gentle simmer and cook until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Add the spaghetti to the skillet and toss with the sauce, adding some of the reserved cooking water to loosen, if needed. Top with shredded parmesan, if desired.
