Preheat oven to 350°. On a baking sheet, spread walnuts, almonds and macadamias into an even layer. Bake until golden and fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool. Add pistachios; coarsely chop nuts.
Place stuffing mix in a very large bowl; set aside. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add sausage and cook until browned, about 6 minutes, stirring frequently to break up any chunks. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate; let drain. Discard any fat left over in skillet.
Heat butter in skillet until melted. Add onion, celery, carrots and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes. Transfer to bowl with stuffing mixture; add sausage, sage and pepper and toss to combine. Pour chicken broth over stuffing mixture; mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use. Before using, stir in nuts; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
