Spaghetti with Italian Sausage and a Simple Red Sauce

Since we are HUGE Italian fans(and Tony is Sicilian) I love to try new pasta dishes! This was so simple and will make it again, although with more sausage since the kids picked it all out and gobbled it up!
1-1/2 lbs sweet Italian sausage
1 pkg spaghetti, cooked, drained and set aside
1 -28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup  fresh basil, torn
Parmesan cheese

Broil the sausages for 5 minutes on each side or until done.  Cut sausage into bite size pieces and return to broiler, on a baking sheet, and broil for about 2 minutes or until done.
HEat olive oil in a skillet or pan over medium heat.  Add crushed red pepper and garlic and saute for 1 minute.  Stir in tomatoes, sugar and salt and cook until thickened, about 4-5 minutes. Add the sausage to the sauce, stir well.  Add pasta and mix, add basil and parmesan and serve! Ta-da! Easy! Enjoy~
