3 uncooked turkey Italian sausage links (12 oz total)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp olive oil
1 (14-1/2 oz) can no-salt diced tomatoes, undrained
3 tbsp snipped fresh parsley
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1 lb eggplant, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
(6 oz) dried whole wheat penne pasta (about 2-1/4 cups)
1/3 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Additional snipped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Place sausage links in an unheated skillet. Add 1/2 inch of water to the skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until juices run clear; drain off liquid. Cook 2 to 4 minutes longer or until browned, turning occasionally. Remove from heat. When cool enough to handle, cut sausages in half lengthwise; bias-cut into 1/2 inch thick slices. Set aside.

2. In a large skillet, cook garlic in hot olive oil for 1 minute. Stir in undrained tomatoes, the 3 tablespoons parsley and the crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil. Stir in eggplant. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions, cooking it for the minimum time listed; drain. Return pasta to hot pan. Stir in eggplant mixture and sausage. Spoon into a 2 quart baking dish.

4. Bake, covered, about 30 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Uncover and bake about 5 minutes longer or until cheese melts. If desired, sprinkle with additional parsley.

Yield: 6 Servings.
