Drizzle with oil, then toss with seasonings. Spread out on two rimmed baking sheets. Prick sausages in several places and place on sheets. Roast in top third and bottom third of oven, stirring occasionally until sausages are cooked, 20 to 30 min, switching sheets halfway through roasting. Meanwhile, cook pasta following package directions, 8 to 10 min. 2. Heat tomato sauce in a large saucepan over medium heat. Slice cooked sausages into bite-size pieces and add to sauce. Stir in roasted vegetables and any pan juices. Stir often, until warmed through. Drain pasta and place in a large wide bowl. Pour sauce overtop. Sprinkle with parsley and toss.
