Creamy tomato pasta

Here is a recipe to use your free diced tomatoes with. This is also an excellent recipe for food storage, if you didn't use the sausage, substituted fresh onions for dry minced onions, and substituted garlic for garlic powder, you would be using all pantry items for this meal.

1 12 oz pkg bow tie pasta
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. sweet Italian sausage, casings removed and crumbled
½ tsp. red pepper flakes
½ c. diced onion
3 cloves garlic, minced

1 ½ c. evaporated milk
½ tsp. salt

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 mins, or until dente; drain. Heat oil in a large , deep skillet over medium heat. Cook sausage and pepper flakes until sausage is evenly brown. Stir in onion and garlic, and cook until onion is tender. Stir in tomatoes, evaporated milk and salt.
