I've been battling the cold from you know where lately and I haven't been in the mood to cook anything extravagant only because the thought of any kind of mess to clean up right now is not appealing.
So for Sunday night dinner I decided to make a favorite dish in our house because it really only dirties one pan, a knife and a cutting board.
Hello easy clean up and it's rather simple to make and defiantly a comfort food dish for me with a nice salad.
This isn't the healthiest dish I've made by far but sometimes we indulge a little in our house with chicken sausage and mushrooms in a creamy tomato sauce, I think it's well worth the splurge.
This is also a perfect dish to make for a small dinner party because most of the cooking is done in the oven and it is defiantly a crowed pleaser!
In a deep oven safe pot like a dutch oven saute onions until caramelized in olive oil, over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, garlic and bell pepper, saute until softened
. Push veggies to the side and add sausage. Cook until sausage is brown.
Note: I used fresh Italian Chicken Sausage but feel free to use pork if you prefer.
Add canned tomatoes with juice and pasta. Pour in chicken stock.
Add 1 cup heavy cream.
Add seasonings and stir until combined.
Top with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
Pop into a preheated 425 degree oven for 25 -30 minutes or until pasta is al dente and cheese is starting to brown.
Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
Mmmm... Need I say more?
