Good dish... I added a little bit of brown sugar to sweeten it and bring out more flavor. Maybe my tomatoes weren't very good?

This is a very healthy, excellent tasting recipe. It has become my favorite pasta dish and it is so easy. I used organic Italian style chicken sausage and it was delicious.
