Baked Route Pazze with Sausage, Peas And Mushrooms

This recipe calls for dried porcini. You can certainly use fresh mushrooms. Sauté them first in a little olive oil.


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 small carrot, finely diced
  • ½ lb. sweet Italian pork sausages, casings removed ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1.5 oz. dried mushrooms, soaked for ½ hour in hot water to cover, drained and sliced
  • 3 cups of shelled peas, fresh or frozen
  • 1 17.6 oz. package of Benedetto Cavalieri Rotelle
  • 5 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese


Time: 1 1/2 hours
  • MAKE the SAUCE.
  • Heat 1 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil in a sauté pan.
  • Add the onion and carrot. When the onion softens, add the sausage. Let it brown a bit, then add the wine. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring from time to time to break up the meat and prevent sticking.
  • Add the mushrooms. Cover and lower the heat. Cook for 20 minutes. Add a few drops of water if necessary.
  • COOK the PASTA.
  • Boil in abundant salted water for no more than 7 minutes, as it must be baked.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Place the rack in the center of the oven. Butter an oven-proof dish.
  • Blend the tomato sauce and the béchamel sauce.
  • Drain the pasta and return it to the pan. Mix it with 4 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and 2 cups of the sauce. Stir in the sausage and the peas.
  • Pour everything into the casserole dish. Cover with the rest of the sauce.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in the oven until bubbling, approximately 35 minutes.
