As written, the recipe is OK, but there is too much sauce for that amount of pasta. That's why people are saying it's soupy.In my experience it takes about 3/4 cup of brothlike sauce to coat 4 ounces of dry pasta. As the recipe calls for 12 ounces of dry pasta, that works out to be 2 1/4 cups of sauce. The liquids alone in this recipe come out to 4 1/2 cups, and that doesn't include bulk from the sausage or onions. Try halving the sauce ingredients. Also, for a flavor boost, try adding 1/2 tsp lightly-crushed fennel seeds while browning the sausage and 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil as you toss the pasta with the sauce.
