Sometimes you just need some good ole’ comfort food in the the form of a hearty whole pasta with my garden peppers, button mushrooms and organic chicken sausage! Am I right? And you can’t go wrong with lovely Parmesan Cheese sprinkled over the top!
Now when it comes to chicken sausage, or any sausage for that matter, I am extremely picky. There are certain brands that I avoid all together and not all brands are the same so my suggestion is you pick the brand that you and your family prefer. It took me a few tries with various other chicken sausage to come across a brand that we all love. Some were to spicy, others to sweet, some not much flavor at all and some just plain gross. This brand seems to be a nice combination of all good things. I am lucky that I live in the land of Italians here in NY so we have a lot of Italian specialty stores where this is sold not already pre-packaged. Again, choose the one you and your family will eat best!
If you don’t have a garden of your own, I highly recommend finding a farmers market to pick up local veggies and fruits. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Wegman’s but they wouldn’t notice if I stopped shopping there. I figure if I give to the local farmers I am helping them keep their farms going and I know exactly where my stuff is coming from. Plus, I find so many more things at farmer’s markets! That can be good and bad 😉
Feel free to substitute regular Italian sausage. It just won’t be as healthy. You can also add spinach or kale or even crushed red pepper flakes for some extra heat! The options are endless!
