Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1

    pound sweet Italian sausages, casings removed (or hot sausage or a combination of both)

  • 1/2

    teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

  • 1

    cup chopped onion

  • 3

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 1

    28-ounce can crushed tomatoes with added puree

  • 1/2

    cup whipping cream

  • 1

    pound farfalle pasta

  • 1/2

    cup (packed) chopped fresh basil

  • Freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese

Directions

•In a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add sausage and crushed red pepper. Sauté until sausage is no longer pink, breaking up, about 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic; sauté until onion is tender, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and cream. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sausage mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. •Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta until tender but still firm to bite. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid. Return pasta to same pot. Add sausage mixture and toss over medium-low heat until sauce coats pasta, adding reserved cooking liquid by 1/4 cupfuls if mixture is dry. Transfer pasta to serving dish. Sprinkle with basil and cheese.
