Pasta with Sausage, Mushroom and Cream Sauce

This recipe is adapted from something in the local co-op's circular. The sausage we used was sweeter turkey-chicken sausage (similar to the stuff you get from Cost-co)

1 Tbsp butter
3-4 cloves minced garlic
1 lb. sweet sausage in small pieces
1 lb. sliced fresh mushrooms
(Preferably dry) white wine
1 1/4 c. heavy cream/half and half (this takes longer to cook obviously)
Fresh parsley (approx 3 Tbsp - 1/4 c. minced)
Parmesan cheese
(optional: a small shake of cayenne)

Sautee garlic in butter briefly on low flame, then add mushrooms. Sprinkle with white wine and salt & pepper. Turn up heat, add sausage, and cook until browned. Add cream, parsley and some more white wine, then reduce until thick. Serve over pasta with shredded Parmesan on top.
