Creamy Sausage Caprese atop Vegetable Pasta

Tiffany Bannworth


Traditional Caprese combines the lush, fresh tastes of Capri which always include Mozzarella, Fresh Tomato, and Fresh Basil. Even though caprese points to goat mozzarella, true caprese uses buffalo mozzarella.

Enjoy a classic with the addition of creamy mushrooms and spicy Italian sausage.

How to Make Creamy Sausage Caprese atop Vegetable Pasta


  1. Prepare this recipe ahead of time.
    Chunky Italian Countryside Marinated Vegetables
  2. In a saucepan, pour in your mushroom soup, fresh or canned. Heat it on medium high. Then add in your batch of marinated vegetables.
  3. Mix in sour cream and mozzarella. Stir until melted and blended in.
  4. Add basil and sausage. Reduce heat to medium low. Cook covered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Boil pasta. I like to use Wacky Pasta Veggie Shapes.
  6. Serve pasta on a plate with two ladles of sauce. Optionally sprinkle Parmesan and diced tomatoes atop.
