Fresh pasta is usually available in the refrigerated deli section of the supermarket. Chicken sausage links are pre-cooked, helping to get this dish on the table fast.

Rockabilly Red is a weekday favourite and goes well with this hearty pasta.

Serves 3-4

Ingredients:

Kosher Salt

1T Extra Virgin Olive Oil

¾ lb Italian Chicken sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces

½ lb fresh mushrooms sliced (use a selection of types for more flavour)

4 medium scallions (white & green parts) thinly sliced

2 t chopped fresh rosemary

Pinch of red pepper flakes

Freshly ground black pepper

1C chicken broth

1 12oz package fresh pasta (linguine or fettuccine)

Method:

STEP 1: Boil plenty of water salted like the sea.

STEP 2: Heat oil in a large, heavy pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned, stirring as needed. (around 3 min)
