Cavatappi Pasta with Turkey Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, and Kale

Cavatappi Pasta with Turkey Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, and Kale

by Pam on November 8, 2012

I had a craving for pasta so I decided to look through the refrigerator to see what I had on hand.  I found some turkey Italian sausage, mushrooms, Parmesan  and just a bit of kale.  I also grabbed some grape tomatoes and garlic off the counter and some pasta out of the pantry.  This meal took less than 20 minutes to make and was hearty, tasty, and healthy – you can’t beat that!  The whole family enjoyed it and we gobbled it right up.

Cook the pasta in salted water per instructions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of liquid.

While the pasta is cooking, heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the sausage from it’s casings and place into the skillet and cook, breaking it up into smaller pieces.  Cook until it browns, about 3 minutes.  Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes, or until the mushrooms are golden brown.  Add the minced garlic, tomatoes, and kale, and cook for about 3 more minutes. Add the broth to the skillet and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Add the cooked/drained pasta to the skillet, and toss to coat evenly. Add some of the reserved pasta water if needed.  Place into serving bowls and top with Parmesan cheese.  Enjoy.
