Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

In a large, heavy skillet warm the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and onions. Using a wooden spoon break up the sausage into bite-sized pieces as it browns.
Continue cooking until the sausage is golden and the onions are tender. Add the beans and oregano cook for 2 more minutes. Add the cup of pasta cooking liquid and stir, scrapping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the mascarpone cheese and stir until it dissolved into a light sauce. Add the salt, pepper, and hot pasta. Stir until coated and serve.

    Exceptional!!!!!!! Used the real thing in Italian Sausage as opposed to Turkey and bumped it up to 1 lb for the recipe. Superb recipe with exceptional flavor. It is a five star item at our house frequently.
    With homemade Italian bread and a bit of Rapinni on the side it is off the chart.

    Tastes great! Can't get enough of it. I added chopped garlic cloves & kalamala olives and used italian sausage instead of turkey. What a great variation. The flavor is intensified for sure. I LOVE IT!!!

    Very good recipe, but needed slight tweaking. Too much pasta and not enough meat. 1lb of Italian turkey sausage minimum and I suggest only half a box of pasta. Other than that the tastes are right on the money! Very good comfort food. Next time I think I'll add veggies, maybe broccoli, for more color and a well rounded meal.
