  1. Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil; cook the sausages in the boiling water until no longer pink in the center, about 40 minutes. Cut the sausages into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly-salted water and bring to a boil. Stir the penne into the water and return to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well.
  3. Combine the tomatoes, mushrooms, onion, garlic, wine, rosemary, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir until the liquid is reduced to about half its original volume, about 10 minutes. Add the sausage and the drained pasta to the mixture and continue cooking until the liquid is reduced to about one-quarter its original volume, 10 to 15 minutes more. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the dish to serve.

I'll even give my OWN recipe 4/5 stars! I think I should have put "pepper to taste". And keep in mind...the 2 tbs of pepper is fresh ground pepper from a pepper grinder, so there's a bit less spice than buying it already ground from the store. However, the salt is absorbed by the sausage pretty well and only adding a little usually wasn't enough for my wife and I. So I guess "salt and pepper to taste." Still love making this dish! Thanks for the comments.

wow...the spices are overwhelming. If I make this again, I'll cut all the spice amts. in 1/2, especially the salt and pepper. Way too much salt and pepper.

I really liked the taste of this recipe! The only thing I regretted was adding the salt. Probably personal taste.

This is a good recipe to use for inspiration. I used it as a base, but reduced most of the spices to a teaspoon (instead of a tablespoon), and it was still deliciously strong. I also used twice the mushrooms and a whole (small) red onions. I also used a little roux to thicken up the sauce after reducing it to a good amount. It came out really delicious. I will definitely make it again. Would be good with other shapes of pasta too, like farfalle.
