Creamy Tomato and Sausage Fettuccini

Ciao! That happens to be the only Italian word that I know so I just had to use it.  As you might have guessed, around here all this week we are talking Italian food.  We LOVE Italian food at our house in any shape, form or fashion.  This fettuccini recipe is so easy and packs a punch in the taste department.  I use mild Italian sausage but if you're feeling like you need to spice it up a little more, feel free to use the hot version.  To make this meal complete, we added a salad but I'm thinking Emily's recipe for Bruschetta on the blog tomorrow would be a great addition.  Enjoy! 

· 1 pound fettuccini pasta, cooked according to package directions 
· 1 pound Italian sausage
· 1 small onion, chopped
· 3 tablespoons minced garlic 
· 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
· 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
· 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
· Salt and Pepper, to taste
· 3 tablespoons whipping cream, heavy cream or milk
· Shredded parmesan cheese, for garnish

1. While pasta is cooking, brown the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once cooked and crumbled, add the onion and garlic. Sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. 
2. Reduce heat to low and stir in tomatoes, Italian seasoning, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Simmer about 10 minutes and stir in cream.
3. Drain the pasta and stir into sausage mixture. Serve immediately and garnish with parmesan cheese, if desired.
