Ingredients:

7 ounces whole wheat linguine
Olive oil cooking spray
½ pound pork sausages, removed from their casings and crumbled
2 garlic cloves, minced
Pinch of hot pepper flakes
16 cherry tomatoes
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions:

1. Prepare linguine according to package directions.

2. Meanwhile, spray a large nonstick skillet with olive oil cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and stir occasionally for about 3 minutes, until the meat begins to brown.
