The result was this delicious combination of chicken and vegetables all in a rich tomato sauce. Yum!
This is a wonderfully filling sausage pasta recipe that you don’t need to add anything to.
Even the pasta doesn’t need to be cooked seperately. It’s all done in that one pot.
You can use pork or beef sausages in this pasta recipe and that will give you different combinations of flavours that you could try.
Lady Lynne and I love our chicken sausages though. That’s why I used them. Also eating those helps to keep our consumption of red meat to a minimum.
Whilst chicken sausages are lower in calories than pork or beef sausages try and get ones that have a lower fat and salt content too. If you can.
It only takes 15 minutes to prep and then 30 minutes to cook this fantastic easy only pot pasta recipe.
