Sauté the meatballs in olive oil until golden. Add garlic, rosemary and thyme. Sauté for 5 minutes.
Add the wine and deglaze, scraping the pan to retrieve all the meat juices. Remove from heat and set aside.
In another pan add the mushrooms and a bit of salt. Sauté for a few minutes and then add the sausage (with juices) and cook everything for 15 minutes.
Finally add the chopped parsley, correct the seasoning if needed and serve.
Enjoy!
