Saucy Sausage Pasta

Saucy Sausage Pasta

this is a hearty meal, sure to leave you very satisfied. ready in no time too. you can use regular sausages (the stuff you get in hot dogs) OR, if u wanna really pack on the taste, add special italian sausages, or summer sausage, maybe chorizo, or even kielbasa ... possibilities are limitless! however, if you're gonna use chorizo, note that it will release a lot of its own fat (which tastes absolutely sensational) so reduce the amount of oil you use accordingly.
