Pam'S Fresh Tomato Pasta & Italian Sausage Recipe @pinch

A gourmet pasta dish is made easily with this fresh tomato pasta and Italian sausage. Fresh tomatoes, garlic, and onion simmer in a light marinara sauce with a bright summertime flavor. Juicy and tender Italian sausage is grilled and served alongside vermicelli noodles tossed in the beautiful fresh marinara sauce. Sprinkled with grated Parmesan as the final touch, this flavorful summer dinner is fantastic. I had tomatoes from the garden that were about to get over-ripe, so I threw together a quick sauce. I wanted it to be all about the luscious ripe tomatoes, so I didn't do much to it. It was a quick dinner. If you don't have fresh tomatoes use canned San Marzano tomatoes. They are the closest to fresh in flavor.
