“A can of lentil soup is a the basis for this quick pasta dish.”
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 ounces hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
1 19-ounce can lentil soup
1 14-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
¼ cup chopped fresh basil, or parsley
Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
12 ounces fusilli
1Put a large pot of salted water on to boil.
2Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking up clumps with a fork, until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add lentil soup and tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in basil (or parsley) and season with salt and pepper.
3Cook pasta until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with sauce and serve.
