spicy sausage fettuccine with basil and parmesan... 40 minutes

the goods:

1 tablespoon olive oil
half an onion, chopped
3 italian sausages, casings removed
2 cups tomato sauce
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 pound fettuccine
8 basil leaves, chopped
parmesan cheese, for serving

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta according to package instructions.
Heat olive oil in a large pan set over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add onion and saute 5-7 minutes, until it is soft and beginning to brown. Add sausages to pan (without casings), and break into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon. Continue to cook and break it up until it is browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add tomato sauce and garlic to the pan and stir to combine everything. Reduce heat to medium-low and let sauce heat, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Drain pasta and return it to the pot. Pour in sauce and stir to combine. Serve with basil and parmesan.
