Pasta Gazzara

1 lb. campanelle or other small shaped pasta
1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
8 cloves of garlic, sliced
3 hot sausages, casings removed
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp. salt

In a skillet, crumble sausages with a little of the sliced garlic and cook on medium heat. Boil pasta according to directions. While pasta boils and sausage cooks, heat olive oil in a medium sauce pan and add mushrooms. Cook for several minutes, then add garlic, careful not to brown the garlic. Drain pasta and add olive oil, garlic, and mushroom mixture along with the crumbled sausage. Add salt, parsley, and half of the parmesan cheese and toss well. Top with extra parmesan cheese when serving. Makes approximately five servings.
