1 package of mild Italian sausage, casings removed
1 large onion chopped
1 and1/4 cups whipping cream
3/4 cup chicken broth

16 ounces penne pasta
3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Several dashes of italian seasoning, basil leaves and oregano

Brown the sausage over medium-high heat until brown and crumbly.


Place sausage in a bowl and reserve 1 TBSP of drippings in the pan.


Add onion to saucepan. Cook until golden. Add cream, italian seasoning, basil leaves and oregano. Simmer until slightly reduced. Add broth. Simmer until thickened.

Action Shot (simmering)

Return sausage to saucepan. Bring to a simmer. Add peas and mascarpone (Or cream cheese and cream combo). Cook uncovered, until peas are tender.


Meanwhile cook the pasta and drain.
