Cook pasta according to package directions (approximately 10 minutes) then drain. Meanwhile cook the sausage covered in 1/2 inch water in a non stick fry pan on high until done (approximately 10 minutes). Cool, halve lengthwise and slice very thin. In large bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. When ready to serve, placed about 12 ounces in a bowl (I use salad plates) and microwave on high for 90 seconds. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired or extra tomato sauce and a dash of basil. Enjoy!
