1 pkg hot Italian turkey sausage
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 Lb tomatoes, peeled, seeded, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup vodka
2 inch piece of hot chili pepper, optional
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
3 cups heavy cream
2 Tbs fresh, minced parsley
1 Lb fusilli pasta

Pan fry sausages in oil following package directions. Slice and reserve. In a heavy skillet, combine tomatoes, vodka, chili pepper, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until almost all the liquid has evaporated, 6-8 minutes. Stir in cream and bring sauce to a boil. Continue boiling uncovered until sauce is reduced by 1/3. Remove chili pepper and add reserved sausage. Cook pasta in salted, boiling water. Drain well and toss with sauce. Serve immediately. Good with Italian green beans.
