Put a pot of salted water on for the pasta. You could even cook the pasta in the skillet with the sausage. When you add the sauce add the pasta. It works best that way with a short pasta like penne or rigatoni.Put a large skillet on at medium high and eyeball just enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Put the sausage in. Brown them well on each side. About 3-4 minutes a side.
