Heat up a 2-liter pot and pour in a little olive oil. Put onion and sausage in the pot once the pot is heated up. Add red pepper flakes and black pepper.
Once the sausage is seared, pour in 3 cans of crushed tomatoes. Pour in ½ cup of water. Add the minced cloves of garlic. Add oregano and 1 tablespoon basil. Let cook on low heat for an hour and a half.
Heat up some water to a rapid boil in another pot. Add the penne pasta. Once cooked strain the pasta.
Serve both pasta and sauce into a shallow bowl with a sausage half and top with Parmesan and basil.
