Penne with Italian sausage

Quick and tasty. Penne is such a fun pasta, I love how the holes fill up with sauce!

Ingredients
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb hot Italian sausage
1 clove garlic
0.5 tsp cayenne
1 jar marinara
1 cup water
0.5 cup white wine
2 tbsp minced parsley
1 lb penne
1.5 cup freshly grated parmesan
0.25 cup heavy cream

Preparation
Squeeze out the sausage from the skins. Fry up in the olive oil ion medium heat until nice and browned. Stir constantly to break up the sausage into small bits. Add the parsley, minced garlic and cayenne. Cook for 1 more minute.

Add the white wine and reduce until most of the wine is gone. Add in the cream and bring to a boil. Mix in the marinara, and rinse the jar with the water into the pot.

Bring to a simmer and cook for 30-40 minutes. Mix half of the sauce with freshly cooked and well-drained penne pasta. Spoon the rest over the plates and sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan.
