A bowl of creamy sausage and mushroom pasta

You can't beat a good pasta dish, and this creamy sausage and mushroom pasta recipe is my children's all time favourite, just pipping Nigella's Marmite Spaghetti (don't knock it until you've tried it), to top spot.

I often make the creamy sausage sauce (minus the pasta) and pop it into the freezer, ready to pull out on a busy weeknight. If your kids don't like mushrooms - mine aren't that keen to be honest, but I continue to persevere - then swap for some diced courgettes.

Ingredients in Creamy Sausage and Mushroom Pasta


  • Sausages - 90% pork sausages if possible
  • Mushrooms - I used closed cup mushrooms
  • Peas
  • Double Cream
  • Parmesan
  • Pasta
  • Thyme
  • Onion
  • Beef Stock

Ingredient substitutions


Make it vegetarian by using vegetarian sausages. You could also up the fresh vegetables in the sauce by adding courgettes, sweetcorn or peppers.

Lower the fat in the dish, by replacing the double cream with low fat creme fraiche, and halving the amount of Parmesan you use.

Which pasta should I use?


I've used penne pasta here, but any short pasta that will hold the chunky sauce, would work well. Rigatoni would be another good option.

  3. Very satisfying and easy to prepare. For those who don't like mushrooms (waves shyly), you can easily leave them out - enjoy!
