  • 2 Italian sausages (casing removed and chopped into small pieces)
  • 3/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 4-5 leaves fresh basil

  • 1-2 pinches hot pepper flakes if desired
  • 1-2 pinches fresh thyme
  • 3 cups cooked short pasta (approximately 1 1/2 -2 cups dry)
  • freshly grated Parmesan Cheese if desired


  • In a large pot boil water, add salt and cook pasta al dente.
  • While the water is boiling, in a large frying pan add olive oil, sausage pieces, tomatoes, oregano, basil, garlic, hot pepper flakes, salt and thyme, stir together, and cook, stirring occasionally on medium heat.
  • Continue cooking until liquid (from the tomatoes) has evaporated and tomatoes are soft and a little bit shrivelled and sausage is cooked.

Enjoy!
