I went down to Greenville with the boyfriend a few weeks ago to visit a really good friend of mine from high school. She was working and allowed me to have free reign of her apartment's kitchen until she got home, which was a huge mistake. Pretending to be the culinary genius I really wish that I was, I decided that instead of some icky jar pasta sauce, I would make my own. It turned out really well, and I think I`ll make it again some day.


  • 1 lb. Mild Italian Sausage
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/3 Onion
  • 1 28oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 Fresh basil leaves, diced
  • 1 lb pasta (mini-penne)
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese


  • 1. Slit the casing of the sausage and crumble into your pan over medium heat until brown. Add onions, garlic and basil.
  • 2. Add tomatoes, seasoning.
  • 3. Let the sauce simmer for about 15-20 minutes (perfect amount of time to cook your bread and make your pasta)
  • 4. Cook the penne. Make sure you salt the water before placing the noodles in.
  • 5. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
