Kosher salt

12 ounces linguine

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed

1 small onion, chopped

1 stalk celery, thinly sliced

1/2 pound sliced mixed mushrooms

2 cloves garlic, chopped

4 plum tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cup dry white wine or low-sodium chicken broth

2/3 cup heavy cream

3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Freshly ground pepper


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil; add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring, until browned, 3 minutes. Increase the heat to high; add the onion, celery and mushrooms and cook, stirring, until tender, 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Reduce the heat to medium high; add the tomatoes and wine and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add the cream and cook until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes. Stir in the parsley and reduce the heat to low. Add the pasta to the skillet and cook, tossing, until it absorbs some of the sauce, 2 to 3 minutes. (Add some of the reserved pasta cooking water to loosen, if needed.) Season with salt and pepper.
