italian rigatoni

Italian Rigatoni

1 (12 ounces) package Rigatoni pasta noodles
1 1/2 pounds italian sausage cut into 1 inch pieces (I use 3 links cut up)
1 large onion chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
2 cans (14.5 ounces) italian diced tomatoes undrained
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp basil leaves- or ground I suppose
1 tsp thyme leaves- ground if you want
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp butter-

In a large skillet, cook sausage until brown. Add onion and garlic with sausage. Add tomatoes, cilantro, basil, thyme, salt, pepper and butter. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes. Serve over rigatoni pasta. Garnish with cheese of choice-Mozzarella and/or Parmesan
