Italian Sausage and Pasta

Italian Sausage & Pasta

1 package (16 oz) bowtie pasta
1 lb bulk Italian sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (I add these later so that it's kid friendly)
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
2 cans (14.5 oz each) Italian stewed tomatoes, drained (and chopped if you'd like)
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried basil
Parmesan cheese

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, cook the sausage, onion and pepper flakes over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink. Add garlic, cook 1 minute longer. Drain. 

Stir the tomatoes, cream, salt and basil. Brint to a boil over medium heat. Reduce hear; simmer, uncovered, for 6-8 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Drain pasta; toss with sausage mixture. Garnish with cheese
