Milissa Hamel


1 package Hillshire FarmŽ Smoked Turkey Sausage, sliced
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbs minced garlic
1- 8.5 ounce jar sundried tomatoes in oil, julienne-cut
1 bunch fresh basil, chopped
1 box Rigatoni pasta
Optional: grated Romano cheese

Prepare pasta al dente according to directions.

Add olive oil to pan over low heat and sauté garlic until fragrant. Minced garlic is the smallest form of garlic, so it will easily burn which produces a bitter taste. You only need to cook minced garlic for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Add sausage to pan

Turn up heat to medium low, and cook until sausage is slightly browned and crispy

Once sausage is done, add the jar of sundried tomatoes, including the oil. Sauté until the tomatoes are warm.

Add pasta to pan with the sausage and tomatoes and mix well
Sprinkle with fresh basil and Romano cheese if desired.
