20 ounces lean hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
1 jar (26 ounces) tomato-basil pasta sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
1 container (9 ounces) refrigerated fresh linguine
Fresh basil, for garnish (optional)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil for pasta.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned and crumbly. Stir in pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
