One Pot Creamy Ziti with Andouille Sausage and Mushrooms – This wonderful creamless creamy ziti pasta dinner is jam packed with delicious andouille sausages and mushrooms, and it’s prepared in one pot and on the stovetop!
HALLO! HALLO! Happy day! It’s Friday and I’m ready for it. I am ready for the weekend. No plans or anything like that. Just looking forward to the kids sleeping in tomorrow so I can get 15 minutes of TV and coffee in the early morning, before all the screams and demands start. Know whadda mean?
Other than that, it’s a good weekend for pasta. A pasta that is going to be prepared on the stove, in one pot, and in just 25-ish minutes. THIS is that! 🙌
No need to tell me. I know. I’ve been hitting the andouille sausage a bit too much lately, eh?
Both are very, very good. I hope you find the time to try them!
But this creamy ziti pasta is what happens when you buy 30 pounds of chicken, 10 pounds of andouille sausage, beef, pork, etc… from your local farmer. He gets me every time. Oh! I got some honey, too. And jams, and pies. Lawwwwd, now that I think about it, I dropped some real cash over there. It’s cool. Gives me a variety to choose from when testing recipes for zee bloggy.
The combination of flavors in this are just too good, you will be tempted to eat it all right out of the pan. I know of someone who did just that and she was completely satisfied.
She also used gluten free pasta once before and couldn’t be prouder of the outcome. You don’t have to do that, but you should know that it will work.
SO this makes a lot of food. Have a crowd coming by for the weekend? Make this. AND a big salad.
What you’re looking at is creamy ziti pasta tossed with sausages, garlic, mushrooms, and thyme in a very tasty, creamless creamy and velvety sauce. The trick is in using evaporated milk instead of heavy cream. I’ve also used skim milk in this go-to sauce of mine, but had to thicken it a bit with corn starch or flour.
The only thing left to tell you is to whip out the biggest skillet/pan that you have, slice up some sausages, mushrooms, and onions, mince thy garlic, and open up a can of evaporated milk. That’s all. Now, git ‘er done!
