OH WOW!!! Do I need to say more?! very simple to make...only made one change and that is I used fresh chopped tomatoes and their juice then canned only because I broke my can opener today. I will definitely make this recipe again soon. It is also going into my "Top Picks for 2010" cookbook. Thanks Lazyme for posting. Made and reviewed for the Feb-Mar/Special Event 2010 Potluck Tag Game.

I was looking for a fast, easy dish tonight and this was it. The whole family enjoyed this pasta. I sauteed the shallots, garlic and red pepper with the sausage. I served the sauce with rigatoni pasta. Yummy dinner! I will make this again!
