3/4 lb reduced-fat sweet or hot Italian turkey sausages
3 cups low-sugar pasta sauce
4 oz shredded, part-skim mozzarella cheese (1 cup)
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside. While pasta is cooking, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sausages and cook, turning often, until no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and slice diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick pieces. Heat pasta sauce over medium heat until hot. Place pasta, sausage, sauce, cheese, and basil in a large bowl and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
