Directions

saute onions in olive oil over medium heat until soft, approx 5-10 minutes. Add garlic, saute for 2 more minutes. Add 'sausage' to onion mixture, saute for 1 minute. Add beans, tomatoes and crushed red pepper, cover and simmer on low 10 minutes. It's ok if beans and sausage started to crumble further. Add either tomato juice (V8) or pasta cooking water to thin as desired (although won't need much if you cover and don't over-simmer the sauce).

Cook pasta in heavily salted water, ommitting fat. Once drained, combine with sauce. Top w/ parm if desired.

Makes 4 servings.

This can be made even healthier (higher fiber and slightly lower calories) with whole wheat pasta instead.
