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.

How to Make Mushrooms, Sausage & cheese stuffed, baked

Step-by-Step

  1. I 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

  2. 4 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.

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