Sausage and Mushroom Pasta


Mushrooms are a staple in my everyday meal plan as I can enjoy them in a variety of foods like pasta, pizza or even enjoyed raw, baked or sauteed. Mushrooms have a variety of nutritional characteristics that make them a fantastic vegetable choice. They provide vitamins such as vitamin c, choline, riboflavin, folic acid, thiamine, pantothenic acid, and niacin. Mushrooms are also a rich source of minerals such as selenium, potassium, copper, iron, and phosphorus.

As the seasons continue to change, I love warmer dishes to enjoy on those cooler nights. A great thing about pasta dishes is that they can be paired down to feed one, or you can boil more and easily increase the amount needed. This sausage and mushroom pasta is the perfect pasta dish, and I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Spaghetti or pasta of your choice
