  • 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.
  • Still on medium heat, add the onion, carrot and celery and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the bruschetta and smashed garlic cloves and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Stir in tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain, reserving ½ cup hot pasta water.
  • 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.
  • Divide into bowls or serve family style.
