    3 garlic cloves, crushed
    2 cups water
    3/4 cup uncooked fusilli or other small pasta

  • Made it tonight for a party and got a LOT of compliments. I used the entire package of turkey sausage (1.25 lbs), but other than that I didn't change anything. Very tasty. Will make again. - 1/15/10
