KID NOTE: Not a drop left.
VEGETARIAN TIP: Skip the sausage and increase the mushrooms and spinach.
GLUTEN MODIFICATIONS: Use brown rice pasta.
This meal was fantastic! We substituted chicken sausage and light cream and it was still delicious.
Delicious! I no longer need to go to Macaroni Grill or Olive Garden. So easy to make and so tasty!!!
I wasn’t a fan of this dish. I felt like the dish was missing something. Maybe a little spice or something. I didn’t like it, but the kiddo ate it up and then some.
Outstanding! Everyone had second helpings so no leftovers. Will definitely be adding this one to my faves!
Loved this meal even though we forgot the white wine:)
We loved it! Used zucchini instead of mushrooms.
Holy cow this was good! Thank you so much to the person who suggested using zucchini instead of mushrooms – excellent substitution. Though in the interest of full disclosure, I admit that I peeled the zucchini so that my kids wouldn’t see ‘green things’ in the dish. The orecchiette was a nice change, and made it much more fun for my kids to put sausage and sauce into the noodle ‘bowls’. We will definitely be making this again!
I’m with the others… this was FANTASTIC!!! Will make again and again.
Very good! Used roasted broccoli instead of mushrooms. family loved it. couldn’t figure out what the reserved pasta water was for??
I was confused as well but maybe it is to be used if the sauce thickens too much.
This was yummy! I added some asparagus that I had in the fridge and really added to it. The kids don’t seem to notice the mushrooms! Win!
Used ground Italian sausage and canned mushrooms for time saving. Sauce very thin so had to thicken. Also used cheese filled tortellini. Delicious.
Used turkey Italian sausage. 5 stars from the whole family!
Great meal! One of our favorites from this site!
So flippin’ delicious. One of the best meals I have ever made or eaten!
This was excellent! We used hot Italian sausage instead of sweet; sliced 2, 8-ounce packages of fresh mushrooms; and added an entire 8 ounce bag of spinach. We are looking forward to the leftovers and making this again!
This was a little bit of heaven in your mouth! This one will go into steady rotation in our house.
This is a favorite and we made it this week as a sub for a different pasta dish. It was just so good that I wanted to send in the feedback. It was excellent! We made it a “double favorite”! I didn’t have spinach (we used too much from another meal), so I used basil from my garden as a sub. Amazing!
This was a flavorful family favorite and it was easy enough for my 14 y/o to prepare for us on his own!
