Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Clean all mushrooms. Trim just 1/8-inch stem from trumpet mushrooms and cut into thick slices.
  3. In a large 12-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add all sliced mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until slightly soft, about 5 to 8 minutes. Drain liquid.
  4. While mushrooms cook, toss cooked penne, sausage, olives, Parmesan and 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese in large bowl. Stir in pasta sauce and whipping cream. Lightly stir in mushrooms and place in greased 3-quart casserole dish. Cover tightly with foil.
  5. Cook 30 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining ½ cup mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake additional 10 to 15 minutes until thoroughly heated and cheese is melted.
