  • Total Time: 30 Minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 1/2 lb. sweet or spicy Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, any kind, sliced
  • 4 oz tomato paste, about 1/3 cup
  • 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 lb. short pasta, like rotini
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)


  1. In a Dutch oven, add sausage and cook over medium heat. Break the sausage up into bite size pieces. 
  2. Once the sausage has browned, add diced onion, green peppers, and mushrooms. cook until the veggies start to soften, about 5 minutes
  3. Add tomato paste, red pepper flakes, oregano, and garlic. Stir until the tomato paste coats the meat and vegetables. Cook until the spices become fragrant, about 1 minute. 
  4. Mix in pasta and chicken broth. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium-low and cover. Cook for 14-16 minutes, occasionally stirring until pasta is al dente and most of the liquid is absorbed. If all of the liquid gets absorbed, add 1 tablespoon of water or chicken broth until a creamy sauce forms.
  5. Remove from heat, stir cheese, and salt to taste. You can top with more red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese.
