    In the meantime, pour the oil into a large frying pan and cook the sausage meat. Add the butter, onions, garlic and sage and gently cook until they are soft and tender.

  • 3.

    Drain the porcini (reserve liquid) mushrooms and add them to the pan. Season with salt and pepper and sauté for 5 minutes. Toss through the artichokes and cook for a further 2 minutes with a few tablespoons of the mushroom water (this will intensify the mushroom flavour in the sauce).
