This is a recipe I found years ago and cooked a lot for my hubby when I used to work full-time and wanted something quick and easy. This is as easy as it gets! It’s very tasty too. Stay tuned for pics!


1 pd uncooked Pasta (whatever you choose, I use linguini or Penne)

2 tsp olive oil

1 small onion, chopped (1/2 cup)

2 tsp of minced garlic

1 pd sweet Italian turkey sausage

1 tsp dried basil

Madison loved it!!!

In large pot cook pasta, drain, transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm.

Meanwhile, Cut up sausage and squash it with a heavy knife then cut as small as you can get it, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add Onions and garlic and sauté for 2 min.  Add sausage and sauté until browned.  Add basil, salt, and pepper and stir to coat sausage.  Add tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 min.

Pour mixture over cooked pasta and toss to combine. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
