If you were to ask me what my favorites foods are, pasta dishes would absolutely be near the top of my list.  And when it comes to pasta dishes?  I love them mixed with just about anything.  As I said, I've never met a pasta I didn't like.

Whether it's tossed in a very simple sauce {or just olive oil, for that matter}, layered up with meat and cheese, or loaded up and tossed with lots of yummy stuff, pasta just can't be beat in my book.

Loaded up and tossed with yummy stuff like browned sausage, Parmesan cheese, onion, garlic, and a tomato-based wine and cream sauce, this Pasta in Creamy Sausage Sauce is one of my favorites.

It's great that it's quick and easy to make, too.

Simply start by sauteing onion, garlic, and Italian sausage.  Choose mild, hot, or sweet Italian sausage to fit your tastes ... we like mild or sweet the best in this dish.  Once the sausage is cooked through, make a simple sauce by adding a good bit of white wine and a can of diced tomatoes with the their juice.  Let this simmer to meld the flavors and reduce down a bit, and then add a dose of heavy cream and a good handful of chopped fresh parsley.

Toss the sausage sauce with cooked pasta and some Parmesan cheese, and dinner is served!  And what a flavorful dinner it is.
