- 2 cans (14 1/2 oz each) no salt added diced tomatoes, drained

- Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast break crumbs in oil over medium heat; remove from heat and set aside.
- In a large nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in tomatoes and olives. Cook and stir until heated through. Drain pasta. Add to skillet. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
*Use whole-wheat pasta, try rolled oats or crushed bran cereal in place of seasoned breadcrumbs. Use a meatless product such as tofu.
