In large skillet heat butter on medium. Add onions and cook for 3-5 minutes until translucent. Add sausage and cook 5-6 more minutes. Add wine, mushrooms and broth, tomato paste, tomatoes and stir well til mixed.

Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove and mix with favorite pasta, wide noodles preferred as it's a thick ragu.
