Number of Servings: 4


    3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
    1 large Onions, raw, thinly sliced
    1 Tbsp. Thyme, fresh
    8 oz. Jennie-O Hot Lean Italian Turkey Style Sausage
    (casing discarded)
    1/4 tsp. chile (red pepper) flakes
    3 cloves Garlic, minced
    1/2 cup Red Wine
    14.5 oz Canned Chopped Tomatoes In Juice
    1 Tbsp Oregano, fresh
    1 Bunch Kale, chopped
    1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
    Salt, to taste
    Pepper, black to taste
    8 oz. Whole Wheat Spaghetti, cooked (pasta)


Add 1 tbsp oil, onion and thyme to a medium pot over medium heat. Stir to coat, cover and cook until onion is softened and just beginning to color, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. Uncover pot, add sausage, chile flakes and garlic, and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Off the heat, carefully deglaze by adding wine. Return to heat and reduce for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, oregano, and kale. Stir well, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove cover and continue coking until sauce is reduced and slightly thickened, 10 minutes. Stir in additional 2 tbsp oil plus vinegar. Season with salt and black pepper.
When sauce is almost finished cooking, add pasta to large pot filled with boiling salted water and cook until al dente, following package directions. Drain well and immediately toss with tomato reduction to coat. Then serve, topped with a drizzle of oil, a sprinkling of parsley and cheese shavings if desired.
