Super Easy Supper

I'm posting this in hopes that other blog readers will be inspired to post their recipes for Super Easy Suppers.

This is something I sort of made up, so it doesn't have a name

1 Package Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage
1 Can Ro-Tel Tomatoes (I usually do the mild or original) or Petite Diced tomatoes (any of those new kinds with the seasonings)
1 Teaspoon crushed garlic
3-4 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
Pasta of your choice

First I squeeze the sausage out of the casing. It's gross, but I don't really like it in the casing. I crumble it and brown it in a pan with the garlic. Pour off grease. I usually brown it a little more because I'm psycho about making sure meat is cooked thoroughly then pour the tomatoes over it. You don't have to use the entire can. I'm not a super big fan of tomatoes, so I only use 1/2 to 3/4 of the can. After about 5-10 minutes or so of letting the mixture cook down over medium heat, I add the parmesan cheese. It kind of soaks up some of the juice and adds a bit to the whole italian thing (even though Ro-tel tomatoes aren't italian). Then serve it over pasta. If you really like Parm cheese you could do a couple shakes on top of that :)

This is one of my favorites and I make it whenever I can find the turkey sausage, I suppose you could make it with pork sausage too, but I like the turkey.

That sounds good, except I've never had turkey sausage before.

There's usually a tiny Turkey section in most grocery store meat sections. It usually consists of ground turkey and turkey cutlets. Every now and then they have the turkey sausage.
