Ridiculously good sausage and mushroom pasta

This dish was inspired by a recipe my boyfriend once took home from him from work, in a brief stint as a chef at a mediterranean restaurant. It was so comforting and rich, and we tried to make it again using the same ingredients, but could never get it quite right *as in, he put…

Mushroom and Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

This started off as me trying to make a mushroom bolognese type thing, as a healthy compromise to the fact that I’ve basically just eaten pasta day after day for the last week.
