Penne Pasta Recipe As Good As It Gets
We prepared this penne pasta with chicken grillers (chicken sausages) my wife picked up at the Farmers Market. We went with chicken sausages because my oldest daughter gave up red meat for Lent. It’s really changed our cooking habits this month but really isn’t that big a deal. We’re eating more chicken and fish and substituting turkey for pork and beef.
This dish begs wild mushrooms like crimini, shitake, hen of the woods but we had white button mushrooms on had so that’s what we went with.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how good this meal turned out. My daughter had a couple of last minute friends over and we all raved how tasty it was. I’m going to put it into my As Good As It Gets category and it couldn’t have been any easier to prepare.
My wife and I enjoyed a glass of 2009 Villa Mattieli Amarone della Valpolicella that went perfectly with this meal. Well, may two glasses.
