Turkey Sausage Pasta

12 oz. of thin spaghetti, or pasta of your choice (I use Healthy taste, or enriched fiber pasta)
1 Tbsp. of olive oil
6 links of turkey Italian sausage, casings removed
1 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes & sauce
1/3 can of water
1 lg garlic clove, minced or pressed
red & black pepper to taste
about 1/2 to 1 teaspoons of dried basil
2 Tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

Warm oil in electric skillet.  Cook sausage (remove casings) till done, and chop up as you cook.  Stir in tomato sauce, water, garlic, pepper, basil, and vinegar.  Meanwhile, cook and drain pasta according to directions.  When sauce is hot and blended, top pasta, and top with cheese.  You don't need to add any sugar to the sauce - the balsamic vinegar sweetens it up nicely!
