In a skillet, heat EVOO over medium-high.  Add sweet Italian sausage and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.  Add chopped crisp, sweet apples and sliced garlic; cook until tender, about 5 minutes.  Stir in a splash of white wine vinegar and drizzle with EVOO.  Toss with cooked pasta; sprinkle with Parmesan.
