With just a few simple ingredients you can whip up this easy Sausage and Mushroom Pasta Sauce for a hearty flavorful meal for your family in less than 30 minutes.
This pasta sauce was one of the best I have ever had if I do say so myself. And it was just thrown together without a recipe with what I had in the kitchen.
I resisted the urge to add any spices to it, relying solely on those in the Italian hot sausage. It was hard for me, but the sauce didn't need it in the end. Feel free to throw in some fresh chopped garlic or Italian herbs (parsley, oregano basil, etc.)
Don't like mushrooms? Leave them out or maybe add some bell peppers when sauteing the sausage instead.
Want tomato chunks instead of a smooth sauce? Use stewed tomatoes for one or both of the cans of tomato sauce. It's pasta sauce, not rocket science people!
