Last night I ate some of the best pasta of my life. You can find them at one of Sibiu´s best restaurants – Max. Just order the tagliatelle paglia e fieno in salsa di tartufo e misto di funghi. The name alone makes me drool. I actually wanted to attempt making them at home today, for this #homemadeMonday, but truffles are really difficult to find in my hometown and as much as I loved the dish, I am not sure my teenage brother would have. So I asked him what pasta to make and he immediately told me about my dad´s amazing spaghetti with sausage and mushrooms. We´ve been eating Italian in our home for as long as I can remember since my dad often went on business to Italy. I think I remember this particular dish from when I was little but I wasn´t quite sure. So I bought some things, took some tomato sauce from our cellar and watched my dad in action. We cooked as a family and what came out were some super easy to make spaghetti to comfort your rainy days.
200g smoked sausage – I used two Romanian cabanosi
250g tomato sauce – I used homemade
200g canned mushrooms
a tsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1. Boil the pasta according to the package instructions.
2. In the meantime, cut up the sausage in 1cm slices and fry them in olive oil for about 5 minutes on medium heat.
3. Add the mushrooms and tomato sauce and fry for another 3 minutes.
4. Drain the pasta and add it to the sausage and mushroom sauce. Salt and pepper it according to your taste.
5. Enjoy with loved ones!
