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.

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

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