Ingredients
  • 1 lb sausage ground Italian or German, depending on your preference for savory or slightly spicy
  • 1/4 cup garlic diced
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms cleaned, de-stemmed, and sliced into 1" chunks (if small, keep whole)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup parmesan grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups spinach fresh
Instructions
  1. In a large heavy pan, heat sausage on medium high, crumbling as you cook with a wooden spoon.
  2. When sausage is browned, after around 6 minutes, add garlic.
  3. Add mushrooms, herbs, and salt - cook another 6 minutes, until lightly browned and soft.
  4. Add stock and turn heat to high to quickly bring to a boil and reduce by half, about 4 minutes.
  5. Turn heat off, and slowly stir in cream and parmesan, whisking as you add to mushrooms.
  6. Add in spinach.
  7. Return heat to medium, and let come to light boil until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and serve - great over pasta or a steak, or alongside your favorite meal!
