Sausage, Mushroom and Ricotta Pasta

This dish goes together really easily. Add your favorite shaped pasta to boiling water. While it is cooking, add 3/4 lb. link sausage which had been cut into bite sized pieces to a skillet with 2T olive oil. Cook the sausage through and then add about 6 oz. of sliced mushrooms and continue cooking until the mushrooms are tender. Add about 8 oz. of ricotta cheese to the skillet and stir until mixed. Thin the mixture with some of the pasta boiling liquid until it has a "saucy" consistancy. Drain the pasta and add to the sausage mixture. Toss to mix and serve with a green salad perhaps. Garnish the sausage with fresh basil.
