Capellini is very thin pasta shaped like spaghetti. If you can't find sun-dried tomato sausage use mild or hot Italian sausage instead.
2 pounds dried capellini or other thin pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds sun-dried tomato-flavored sausage, casings removed
12 drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
Grated peel from 2 lemons
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

30 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite, about 6 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and saute until cooked through, breaking up sausage with spatula, about 6 minutes. Add sun-dried tomatoes, lemon peel and lemon juice. Cook 1 minute longer. Add cherry tomatoes and cook just until heated through, about 1 minute longer.

Toss sausage mixture, cooked pasta and basil in large serving bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.

DO-AHEAD TIP: Salad can be made 2 hours ahead. Cover and let stand at room temperature.
