Brown sausage. Not gray but Sear and Brown, leaving crusties at the bottom. Remove before totally cooked through.

Drop 1 Tbsp oil into pan. Add onion, S/P and stir releasing crusties. Add peppers and garlic. Stir in Italian seasoning. 4 minutes.
Stir in tomato paste until starting to caramelize.
Return pork.
Add toms and simmer for about an hour until tomatoes break. Simmer cover for about 30 minutes. Quarter mushrooms and drop about 15 minutes before done. Turn off heat and keep covered letting the shrooms soak up any watery liquid.

Serve over pasta.

Tip: Add butter and basil to pasta. I used fettuccine.
