"A KC favorite! I make this quite often it's a family favorite, don't even think about making this with ground beef and regular canned tomatoes it will not be as good, use only Italian sausage and stewed tomatoes. This is not a quick recipe it needs time to cook down. It tastes even better the next day! Prep time includes cooking the sausage meat."

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and transfer to a bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of oil to prevent sticking.

Step 2

In a pot or Dutch oven cook the sausage meat with onion and pepper flakes over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain fat.

Step 3

Add in the garlic then continue cooking the meat until lightly browned (about 12-15 minutes).

Step 4

Stir in the drained stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, 1/2 cup heavy cream, salt and basil; bring to a boil over medium heat.

Step 5

Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours stirring frequently and seasoning with salt and pepper and more cream if you like about halfway through cooking (the longer you simmer the better it will be).

Step 6

At the end of cooking time toss in the cooked pasta and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Step 7

Serve more Parmesan cheese at the table.

Fantastic, this really is one of the better skillet recipes I have made, extra spicy sausages were used for this and 2 teaspoons basil, I could have ate this all myself even before I served it, thanks to KittenCal I have another great recipe to add to the top of my list and I have many from this site that are winners!

This recipe is delicious and simple to prepare, and it turned out great! At first, I thought there was going to be too much liquid. But, after combining the pasta in with the sauce and letting it simmer a few minutes, it became the perfect in between sauce; not to thick and not too watery. It was a light creamy sauce. The only thing I did different was add a cup of fresh sliced mushrooms to the mix. We had some Texas toast with the meal and it was delicious! Thanks Kitten for posting this recipe. :)
