    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.

    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).
