Tips on Making This Pasta and Sausage Recipe
I like to use whole grain pasta to add fiber. Try adding whatever veggies you have in your fridge to pack a bigger nutritional punch.
Remember the more colors, the more vitamins, minerals and nutrients you are consuming. I always tell people to eat as many colors as you can in each meal.
This is so versatile, cater to foods that you like. I just sliced up some grilled turkey sausage to add some protein and VOILA!!
I have made this with sliced up rotisserie chicken as well and it was just as delicious. You can easily use this as a base and customize it with whatever you already have at your house or however you like it.
Just don't leave out the garlic white wine sauce. It really is THAT delicious.
It tastes even better than a dish that you would get at a fancy restaurant, but we won't tell anyone just how easy this is to make. Let them think it took you hours to prepare and cook.
It will be our secret.
