I made this up for dinner tonight. Yum, it was good!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 can mushrooms
1 can sliced olives
1 small jar diced pimento
1 pkg. chicken sausage, cooked (if necessary) and sliced (I got some pre-cooked mushroom asiago sausage from Trader Joe's)
1/3 cup heavy cream*
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
hot cooked pasta (I used egg noodles)
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and saute until the onion becomes translucent. Add mushrooms, olives, pimento, and sausage; cook and stir until heated through. Add cream and parmesan cheese, cook and stir until cheese is melted (you can add a little cornstarch slurry if you want it thicker). Mix into hot cooked pasta. Cover and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
*Note: if you want to lighten it up a little, just use evaporated milk in place of the cream. I happened to have some cream I needed to use up - that's a rare occurrence in our house! Evaporated milk is thicker than regular milk and so it acts more like the cream.
