Angel Hair Pasta with Italian Sausage and Heirloom Tomatoes

I always try to make a nice Sunday night dinner.  Lately I have been making pasta on Sunday night.


8 ounces of angel hair pasta

1 pound of Italian sausage, cut into 1/4" slices

1/4 cup olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup minced fresh basil

2 cups heirloom cherry tomatoes, cut in half

2/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese


Cook the pasta according to the package directions.

Put 1/4 cup of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet and sauté the sausage slices for 5 minutes.

I bought the sausage at Trader Joe's.

After the sausage has cooked for five minutes, add the garlic, basil, tomato slices and salt and pepper to taste.

Add the parmesan to the tomato mixture.

Drain the pasta and add to the tomato skillet. Drizzle some olive oil and toss the pasta with the tomato and sausage mixture.

This is such a quick meal! I usually serve with a green salad and breadsticks.
