1 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
2/3 cup dry white wine
1- 14 1/2 oz. can diced peeled tomatoes with juices
1 cup whipping cream
6 tbsp. chopped Italian parsley
1 pound penne pasta
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Melt butter with oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high
heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until golden brown and
tender, about 7 minutes. Add sausage and sauté until golden
brown and cooked through, breaking up with back of spoon,
about 7 minutes. Drain any excess drippings from skillet.
Add wine to skillet and boil until almost all liquid evaporates,
about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes with juices and simmer 3
minutes. Add cream and simmer until sauce thickens slightly,
about 5 minutes. Stir in 4 tbsp. parsley. Season to taste with
salt and pepper. Remove from heat. (Sauce can be
prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but
still firm to bite. Drain pasta; transfer to large bowl.

Bring sauce to simmer. Pour sauce over pasta. Add 3/4 cup
cheese and toss to coat. sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup
cheese and 2 tbsp. parsley.

Note: I sometimes use Johnsonville, pre-cooked Italian
sausage and slice it at an angle to save time and it taste just
as great. A wonderful recipe!
