1 tbsp olive oil - extra virgin
1 onion, medium - chopped
1/2 lb. Italian sausage - removed from casing if necessary
1 cup milk
1/4 cup tomato paste
salt and pepper to taste
Step: 1Put the oil in a 10-inch skillet and turn the heat to medium; a minute later, add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until it softens, about 5 min. Add the sausage in bits and turn the heat to medium high; cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is nicely browned, 5 to 10 minutes.

Add milk and tomato paste, along with some salt and pepper; stir to blend and simmer for about 5 min. or until thickened but not dry. Keep it warm if necessary, and if it becomes too thick, add a little more milk or water.

Serve atop pasta or ... well, something. :)
