IngredientsMeasures
Dried sun-dried tomatoes, sliced (use scissors to cut into small strips) ¼ cup
Whole wheat penne (or other pasta) 4 ounces
Hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed ½ pound
Olive oil 2 teaspoons
Garlic cloves, thinly sliced 2

  1. Directions
  2. Steam sun-dried tomatoes in a small amount of boiling water for 5 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Cook pasta al dente according to package directions, omitting salt and oil.
  4. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook for 5 minutes, breaking it apart with a fork as it cooks, until evenly browned. Add garlic and cook another minute.
