Pasta Pasta

So I'm a little late in posting this since I actually made it last Thursday but I absolutely had to post since it was SO good. Two thumbs up all around. Joe isn't much of a pasta eater but I knew, when he took the leftovers (that I had intended to eat myself) for lunch the next day, that this recipe got his sign of approval. So incredibly easy and irresistibly yummy. I used Isernio’s Chicken Sausage in the Italian sausage variety. My absolute favorite brand of sausage (and so incredibly LEAN!) For my Oregonian followers, it can sometimes be found in the ground turkey meat section at Fred Meyer but it seems like it's not a permanent part of their stock so it comes and goes (and for this reason, I stock up and freeze it when they DO have it...) I used Roma tomatoes and a Romano/Parmesan cheese blend simply because I could not find pecorino Romano. I had to forgo the fresh Basil because Fred Meyer was out of stock but I'm sure it would make it all that much more delightful. I served it with a side dish of sauteed zucchini which I sprinkled with Italian seasoning. Mmmmm.... enjoy!
