Holy crap. (delicious ass pasta recipe stolen from Mario Batali)

God, I love that mean.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED (for two servings):
1/2 pound of pasta (I used farfaloni, farfalle works too. Basically a good "stabbing" pasta, something with a solid shape that isn't a noodle)
8-10 oz mushrooms (I used button mushrooms, creminis were the original used. Portabellos would work good too. Don't worry too much about size, they cook down quite a bit)
1/2 pound Italian sausage
1 small-medium onion, chopped
1/2 bunch of parsley, chopped
2 tomatoes, roughly chopped and seeded
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup red wine (do not worry about the brand, I used JUG WINE and it was fantastic)
Parmesean cheese

Start by getting a big saucepan over medium heat, and by getting a bigass pot of water on the boil. When the saucepan is hot (but not smoking) add the garlic and onion. Cook until light brown, about five minutes. Add the sausage, cook until golden brown, another five minutes. Then, you add your mushrooms, cook them for a minute or two, add in the tomatoes and the wine and cook for fifteen to twenty minutes. (you should also taste it at this point, to see if it needs salt and/or pepper)

By now your water should be boiling. Add your pasta, cook until al dente, add to the sauce. (try to reserve some of the pasta water) Cook for a minute, add the parsley and parmesean to taste. If the pasta looks a little dry, add some of the pasta water one teaspoon at a time. Serve warm and...basically that's it.
