2
Cook pasta in salted boiling water for 8 minutes. Drain; return pasta to pot.
3
Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add mushrooms and onion. Cook for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add sliced sausage and Italian seasoning; cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until mushrooms are softened and sausage is cooked through (165°). Add mushroom mixture and pasta sauce to pasta in pot. Gently stir to combine.

Whisk together beaten eggs and ricotta until combined. Stir in 1 cup Italian cheese and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese.
