Tomatoes and Penne

I have a quick and simple recipe for you today. Only a few ingredients, and about 20 minutes to prepare!! And another great thing about this recipe is you can switch up the ingredients, and use whatever you have on hand.

Tomatoes and Penne

1 small box of penne pasta
1 package of sausages
(I used a basil and garlic italian sausage)
4 c. tomatoes, whatever you've got
(I used yellow cherry tomatoes mostly)
1 bunch of basil
1/2 shredded Parmesan

In a large pan of boiling water cook pasta as instructed. While pasta is cooking in a frying pan cook sausages until brown and cooked through (following package instructions). If using cherry tomatoes you can leave whole or cut in half; larger tomatoes I sliced as if putting in a salad. When sausage is done cooking, take off heat and slice at a diagonal. In the same pan you cooked the sausage add some olive oil and saute tomatoes for just a minute or two, you can add garlic or any seasoning you would like, or just salt and pepper. Add sliced sausages to tomato mixture, and saute another minute.
Place drained and rinsed pasta onto a platter, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Pour tomato sausage mixture over the pasta. Add chopped basil and Parmesan on top of that. Toss at the dinner table before serving.
Serve with caesar salad and sliced sourdough.
