I made these as a reduced carb alternative when I was making my guys ravioli.
To make this even lighter use Italian Turkey sausage links.

Step-By-Step

1I used a no meat sauce, but here is a link to two of my favorite pasta sauces with meat. These could be used as the garnish sauce.
Garden Fresh Pasta Sauce with Italian Sausage
Italian sausage pasta sauce
24 sausage links made about 1 3/4 c of cooked sausage. To that I added 1/4 c of pasta sauce. I used Pomodori Gourmet Sauce, but but any flavorful vegetarian pasta sauce would work.

3Break sausage up and brown. I wanted really fine sausage so I placed it in my food processor and pulsed a few times.
4Then put back in skillet and add sauce and mozzarella, stir till cheese mostly melts.
5With the small end of a fork or spoon, scrap out the gills and hollow out the mushroom.
6Place about 1 tbsp of stuffing inside, or fill to heaping top. Brush mushroom with olive oil. Bake at 400° for about 15-20 min.
7Top with favorite grated Italian cheese, serve with more sauce and freshly chopped basil.
