Spaghetti With Grape Tomatoes And Chicken Sausage

 

A delicious and quick pasta dish perfect for a mid week dinner. The savory of the sausage compliments the sweetness of the tomatoes. The white pepper makes the flavor of the cherry tomatoes pop. Try whole wheat pasta for extra fiber and texture.  We did our with chicken sausage, but turkey sausage is just as great.  Great with a glass of Pino Noir

8 oz of spaghetti or linguini
1 & 1/2 cups grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 cup yellow onion diced
1 chicken and sun dried tomato sausage, cooked and thinly sliced
3 tablespoons virgin olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
fresh cracked white pepper and salt to taste
grated cheese such as grana padano or reggiano parmigiano

While cooking the pasta al dente, prepare the sauce as follows. Sauté the onions in the olive oil till golden brown, add the sausage let cook for 3 minutes. Add the white wine to deglaze the pan, stir in the tomatoes and the salt and pepper.
Drain the pasta and serve in a deep pasta bowl, with the sauce on top. Sprinkle with the grated cheese and enjoy!
