Place portabella mushroom in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.
In a large non-stick oven-safe skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped mushrooms, sausage, onion and garlic. Use spatula to break up sausage into tiny pieces. Once cooked, remove from pan and set aside. Leave any fat renderings in pan.
