6 tablespoons grated fresh pecorino Romano cheese, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup torn fresh basil leaves
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain and keep warm.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove casings from sausage. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add sausage and onion to pan; cook 4 minutes, stirring to crumble sausage. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in pasta, 2 tablespoons cheese, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese and basil.
I have made this a few times now. I use hot chicken Italian sausage for a bit of extra spice and usually parmesan because I always have it on hand. Quick, easy and good - those are the types of recipes I like!
