Pappardelle with Spicy Sausage and Mixed Wild Mushrooms


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 9 ounces best-quality spicy sausage, casing removed
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound mixed wild mushrooms, such as chanterelles, oyster, and shiitake, trimmed and torn
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, leaves
  • 1 to 2 small dried red chiles, crumbled
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Fresh Pappardelle
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; add sausage, onion, and garlic, breaking up sausage with a spoon. Cook until onions are golden, about 7 minutes. Add mushrooms, thyme, and chiles; cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms release their liquid and it evaporates, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil; add salt and pappardelle. Cook until al dente, 3 to 5 minutes. Reserve a 1/2 cup cooking liquid; drain pasta. Return to pot.

  3. Add butter to mushroom mixture along with some of the cooking liquid to loosen, if necessary. Return mushroom mixture to pot; toss to combine. Transfer to a large serving platter. Garnish with parsley and cheese; serve immediately.

    This recipe was amazing my family and I loved it! I didn't have parsley so I left it out and my mom doesn't like onion so i used more like a quarter than the whole thing. I used really spicy dried chilies. My favorite pasta recipe so far thanks
