Creamy Pasta with Sausage

1 Tbsp. olive oil
Sausage and onion
1 whole onion, diced
1 lb. Polish sausage
thyme, basil, pepper, oregano, coriander
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 c. chicken broth
14 oz. can diced tomatoes
4 oz. can green chiles, mild (or whatever you want, I suppose)
1/2 c. heavy cream
8-10 oz. pasta (if you use more, make sure you increase the chicken broth amount)
1-2 Tbsp. cilantro
1 c. Trader Joe's Creamy Toscano Cheese (or Parmesan or Asiago)

Everything in one skillet
Add the oil to a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Add the sausage and onion; cook until browned, about 5 minutes. While the onion and sausage are cooking, add a little bit of each spice listed above. Add the garlic; cook about 30 seconds.
Mmmmm, ready to eat!

To the skillet, add the chicken broth, tomatoes, chiles, cream, pasta, and cilantro. Stir it all together. Add more of the same spices here. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the pasta is tender.

Remove from heat. Stir in the cheese. Serve hot. It is delicious.
