     You can use sweet or hot Italian turkey sausage for this dish - either one blends perfectly with the pasta sauce and fresh basil. 
     Prep time: 5 minutes 
     Start to finish: 20minutes 
     8 ounces spelt or whole-wheat rigatoni or penne 
     3/4 pound reduced-fat sweet or hot Italian turkey sausages 
     3 cups low-sugar pasta sauce 
     4 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (1 cup) 
     1/2 cup chopped fresh basil 
     Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
     Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside. 
     While pasta is cooking, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sausages and cook, turning often, until no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and slice diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick pieces. 
     Heat pasta sauce over medium heat until hot. Place pasta, sausage, sauce, cheese, and basil in a large bowl and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
