Sweet Italian Sausage with Mushrooms and Onions

It was a Saturday, and I needed a quick and easy meal. Hello, sweet Italian sausage! You can mix this sausage with pasta and garlic olive oil and spinach or combine it with some mushrooms and onions and serve with rice.


  • 1 package sweet Italian sausage (5 links)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1/2 container shiitake mushrooms
  • Fresh sage, chopped


In a skillet on medium heat, cook sausages whole, with the lid on, for about 15 minutes, turning every 2-3 minutes to brown evenly on all sides, until internal temperature reaches 160-170F. Remove sausages from skillet and reserve some of the cooking sauce.

With the skillet still over medium heat, add 1 T olive oil, salt, pepper, the onions, mushrooms, and sage. Saute 5 minutes.

Slice the sausages into half-inch coins once they have cooled. Add coins to skillet and toss to combine all ingredients. Serve on a bed of rice with sauteed spinach as a side.
