INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add sausage and sugar to the pan. Cook until sausage becomes brown and begins to caramelize, about 8-10 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate with a slotted spoon. Be sure to leave the drippings in the pan.
  2. Still on medium heat, add the soffritto, bruschetta and smashed garlic cloves. Sauté for 10-12 minutes.
  3. Stir in tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain, reserving ½ cup hot pasta water.
  5. Remove smashed garlic from the sauce and discard. Immediately stir in hot pasta and cooked sausage to the saucepan. Add pasta water to the sauce until desired consistency is reached.
  6. Divide into bowls or serve family style.
