Add 6 cups of water to the non-stick CanCooker JR or Companion and place on medium heat until steaming, slowly add rigatoni to the CanCooker. Cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes until rigatoni is fully cooked, or desired tenderness.

Drain water with the CanCooker Strainer Lid and set rigatoni aside in bowl. 

In the CanCooker, cook Italian-sausage over medium low heat 6-8 minutes, break into crumbles. When sausage is fully cooked; add butter, mushrooms, garlic & CanCooker Original Seasoning Salt, stirring occasionally for about 4-6 minutes; covered with lid.

Serve mixture over rigatoni and sprinkle with parsley.
