Sausage and Mushrooms Sauce

The idea for this recipe comes from Max :)

It is not the healthiest pasta sauce you will ever see but it is one of the tastiest, I can bet on that!

Sausage And Mushroom Sauce

This sauce takes some 30 minutes to make (unless you already have sauteed mushrooms). It is great made fresh and enjoyed with some penne pasta but it can also withstand the freezer with no problem, so… be lazy! We always make more than we need and we freeze part of it for some other time. You can defrost it in the microwave and then sauté it in a pan with a little extra tomato sauce or olive oil, toss your pasta in and you are done!

The following ingredients are for 4 servings.


  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 mild italian sausage
  • 1 tsp dry rosemary
  • 6 tbs tomato sauce or strained tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sauteed mushrooms


Remove the skin from the sausage and break it in small pieces with your fingers, the smaller the better.

Sausage And Mushroom Sauce Steps

Heat the olive oil in a pan and toss the sausage in (picture 1). Cook stirring with a wooden spoon breaking the larger pieces of sausage in smaller ones.

When the sausage is done (it looks brownish instead of pink) add the tomato sauce (picture 2) and the sauteed mushrooms, stir for few more minutes until the tomato sauce has thickened (picture 3).

Enjoy! I would suggest penne for this sauce, but any kind of short pasta works.
