1 pkg Rotini or Penne Pasta
1 lb Italian Sausage, no casing
1 medium Onion, chopped
3 cloves fresh Garlic, chopped
2 cans (14 oz. each) diced Tomatoes
1 can (14 oz.) Tomato Sauce
1 can (6 oz.) Tomato Paste
3 cups Water
8 oz. Cream Cheese
3-4 Tb. Basil paste, or a handful of fresh chopped Basil
Salt & Pepper
Cook pasta to al dente according to package directions. Rinse and set aside.
Sauté sausage in 8 qt pot (see notes below if using an Instant Pot), then remove with a slotted spoon. Sauté onion until translucent. Add garlic, diced tomato, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Use a stick blender to puree everything in the pan, or transfer to a blender. If you prefer chunky, just leave it as it is.
Add water and simmer for 1 hour. In the meantime, cut the cream cheese into cubes. After simmering, stir in basil and cream cheese until melted. Blend again, if needed. Add salt and pepper to taste, then stir in sausage and pasta.
Instant Pot Directions: Instead of using an 8 qt pot, sauté in the Instant Pot. After adding water, set pot to high pressure (or use soup/stew setting) for 8 minutes, then release the steam manually when time is done.

1 c. cacao chips, organic, 60% cacao or ghiradelli's dark chocolate chips 60% cacao
