Delicious Pasta Sauce with Turkey Sausage Recipe

I made this recipe last week for one of our weekly dinners and it was absolutely delicious! I am usually not a huge fan of sausage but this turkey sausage was yummy! I used angel hair pasta when I made it but you can also use regular spaghetti noodles.

Pasta Sauce with Turkey Sausage Recipe

1 tbsp. olive oil (I used extra virgin olive oil)
1 lb. turkey Italian sausage links, casings removed
1/2 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp. tomato paste
2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup fresh basil, minced
hot cooked pasta
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

In a large fry pan, heat olive oil and cook sausage, onion and garlic over medium heat until the sausage is no longer pink, drain. Add the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste. Reduce the heat and then simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with freshly minced basil and serve over cooked pasta of your choice. You can then sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top.
