Pam's Fresh Tomato Pasta & Italian Sausage

I had tomatoes from the garden that were about to get over ripe so I threw together a quick sauce. I wanted it to be all about the luscious ripe tomatoes so I didn't do much to it. It was a quick dinner.

If you don't have fresh tomatoes used canned San Marzano tomatoes. They are the closest to fresh in flavor.

Stove Top

Ingredients

3 c
diced fresh tomatoes
1/2 c
diced onion
1 clove
garlic, minced
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1/2 tsp
italian seasoning
1/3 c
sliced kalamata olives
1 Tbsp
tomato paste
1 Tbsp
sugar, approximate, adjust based on acidity of the tomatoes
1/2 lb
vermicelli pasta or spaghetti of choice
4
italian sausages

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat up your grill for the sausages. If you prefer they can be pan fried.
2
Put water on to boil for the pasta and add salt.
3
Put the sausages on the grill. My husband does this while I do the rest. If you need to, cook the sausage first then do the pasta.
4
Heat the oil in a skillet and saute the onion and garlic until tender.
5
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, spices, and salt and pepper. Turn to simmer.
6
While that's cooking drop your pasta in the water.
7
Taste your sauce and add sugar as needed. Add olives.
8
Drain pasta and reserve pasta water. Add pasta to the sauce. Add pasta water to loosen if needed.
9
Serve the pasta with the sausage on the side. Pass parmesan cheese to top.
