This is from Rogers/Gray Italian Country Cookbook. Buy a bag of Caesar salad, some crusty bread and voila~~a nice meal.

Penne with a Quick Sausage Sauce

Serves 6

2 T olive oil
2 small red onions, peeled and chopped
5 mild Italian sausages, removed from casings
1 1/2 heaped T chopped fresh rosemary
2 bay leaves
red pepper flakes to taste~1/2-1 t
28 oz can peeled plum tomatoes, drained and chopped
11 oz penne rigate
2/3 c heavy cream
1 c Parmesan, freshly grated
salt and pepper

Saute onions in oil, until light brown. Add crumbled sausage, rosemary, bay leaves, and red pepper flakes. Saute over high heat, stirring to break up sausage. Remove excess fat. Continue to cook for 20 minutes till sausage brown and crumbly. Add tomatoes and bring to boil. Remove from heat.

Cook penne in well salted water. Drain.

Stir cream into sauce, then pasta and half the Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with remaining Parmesan.
