Kielbasa with Creamy Mustard Pasta

Kielbasa with Creamy Mustard Pasta2Ingredients

8 oz. penne or other short pasta

1 tablespoon cooking oil

14 oz. Kielbasa, sliced in ¼ inch disks

½ cup sliced green onions

¼ cup dry white wine or chicken broth

1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

¼ cup butter

½ cup half and half

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

 

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to packaged directions.
  2. Heat cooking oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the sliced kielbasa and cook until it starts to crisp up on each side.  Remove from the skillet onto a paper towel-lined plate.  Drain the extra grease from the skillet.
  3. Return the skillet to the stove. Add the onions and wine/broth, letting it bubble and loosen the brown bits from the bottom of the skillet.  Add the thyme and stir until the liquid is almost evaporated.
  4. Add the butter. Once it is melted, add the half and half and mustard.  Bring it to a simmer and let it thicken a little before adding the Parmesan cheese.  Stir until the cheese is melted and the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
  5. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and stir to coat the pasta.
  6. To serve, either mix the kielbasa into the pasta or top each serving of pasta with some sausage
