I just threw this together to get some protein for lunch today. I made it with hot Italian sausage (from Sprouts) because they did not have regular. Anyone who knows me knows that there are some ketchups that I find spicy so….I couldn’t eat much because my tongue was on fire. My husband loved it though and didn’t detect any spice at all. I swear, he destroyed his sense of spice with all of his gorge meals on green chili in New Mexico for Pararescue training. Anyway, this would’ve been wonderful and simply if I had been able to purchase the sweet Italian sausage that I usually use.
- 1 Tbsp fat (lard, bacon fat…any paleo approved fat)
- 1 lb ground Italian sausage (sweet or hot)
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms
- 1 cup marinara sauce (check ingredients to make sure there is no canola oil or sugar added)
In a skillet over medium high heat, melt the fat and brown the sausage. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Add the marinara sauce and simmer for 5 additional minutes. Serve over “miracle noodles”, spaghetti squash, any spiralized veggies, or eat it plain.
