Sauteed onion, garlic and mushrooms are seasoned with oregano, basil, parsley and flavorful strips of ham. A sweet, rich mix of ready-made marinara sauce and heavy cream gives this dish its rose color. Serve over hot pasta and enjoy every luscious bite.
I've been using this recipe for over 20 years, ever since I moved to South Carolina. It can be adjusted to serve any number. Allow 2 tablespoons of seasoning per quart of water. If you cannot find hot smoked sausage, use another smoked sausage such as kielbasa and add crushed hot red pepper to the pot.
