I typically avoid making my own pasta sauce, because it's time consuming and you can get really good sauce in a jar. With that said, this is pretty quick, easy and good.
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 pound Italian sausage, removed from casing if necessary
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- Salt and pepper
- 1 pound pasta
- At least 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Add milk, tomato paste, some salt and pepper; stir to blend, and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until thickened but not dry. Keep it warm if necessary, and if it becomes too thick, add a little more milk or water.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta, and drain it when it's done. Toss pasta with sauce and parmesan cheese and enjoy.
