Creamy Tomato and Sausage Pasta

Pasta is a go to meal at our house.

Especially now that the nights are getting a cooler, evenings are busy with activities and Fall is in the air. A nice plate of yummy pasta is just good comfort food.

This recipe is one that I usually have all the ingredients on hand, or almost all. So when I don’t know what to fix for dinner, pasta is usually the answer.

This particular recipe calls for Italian Sausage but you could also use ground chicken, turkey or hamburger. Whatever you have.

If you don’t have fresh basil, use dried instead.

It uses canned tomatoes and I always have a few cans of those in the pantry.

I used penne pasta but any size or shape will do.
