  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 lb. Italian sausage I used Diestel brand turkey Italian sausage
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms stemmed and sliced
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 8 ounces whole wheat farfalle pasta or sub with your favorite short cut pasta
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas thaw slightly if frozen
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan plus more for serving
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil


  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat.  Add the turkey sausage, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add the mushrooms.  Cook for another 4-5 minutes until the mushrooms have browned and their liquid has evaporated.
  • Add the water and scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.  Add the farfalle and a pinch of salt and stir to combine. 
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low and cook for 11-15 minutes or until the pasta is tender and most of the water is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
    Add the peas during the last 4-5 minutes of cooking time.
  • When the pasta is done, remove from heat and stir in the parmesan cheese and fresh basil.  Adjust the seasoning as necessary and serve with additional parmesan cheese if desired. Serve and enjoy!


  • I used whole wheat farfalle in this recipe for added fiber, but feel free to substitute with your favorite pasta.
  • I recommend using turkey Italian sausage as it's nice and lean and still has wonderful flavor, but any type may be used.
  • Substitute your favorite veggies, just bear in mind that vegetable cooking times vary.
  • You can substitute the basil with your favorite fresh herbs or use 1 teaspoon dried herbs.
  • Store leftover Italian sausage pasta in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. If the pasta seems dry, drizzle additional olive oil over the top before serving.
