Spaghetti with Italian Sausage and Mushroom
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb italian sausage (casing on)
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 lb white mushroom, sliced
  • 24 oz pasta sauce
  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • dried or fresh basil for topping
  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil, and season it with salt. Cook the spaghetti according to the label, then rinse with cool water and set aside.
  2. In a large saute pan, heat up the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Plate, and set aside to cool.
  3. In the same saute pan and over medium heat, add the onions and cook until soft and translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the mushrooms, and cook for another 4-5 minutes, until soft. Add the pasta sauce, bring to a simmer, and stir occasionally.
  4. While the sauce is simmering, slice the sausages into bite size pieces (about ½ inch thick) when it is cool enough to work with. Add the sausage to the sauce, and cook for another 4 minutes, then serve over the spaghetti. Top with dried or fresh basil (optional).
