DIRECTIONS

  • Take sausage out of casings and crumble.
  • Put olive oil and chopped garlic in a skillet and turn the heat to medium.
  • When the garlic becomes pale gold, add the sausage.
  • Turn from time to time, until nicely browned all over, about 15 minutes.
  • Add the tomato and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, adjusting the heat if necessary so it will cook at a gentle simmer.
  • After about 20 minutes, when the fat separates from the other juices and floats free, add the cream and turn up the heat.
  • Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cream is reduced.
  • Add salt and a liberal grinding of pepper.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the chopped parsley.
  • Cook pasta in pot of boiling salted water.
  • When tender, but firm to the bite, drain; toss immediately with sauce.
  • Serve at once with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
  • NOTES: The sauce maybe be prepared several hours in advance.
  • It should be reheated gently when the pasta is almost cooked.
  • I always double the sauce because in my house there never seems to be enough.
  • My family loves this sauce.
  • Double everything except the sausage, pasta and parmesan cheese to double the sauce.
