Gluten Free pasta with chicken sausage
Estimated cooking time: 20 minutes
Chicken sausage- 12 ounce pack of fully cooked sausage sliced on diagonal into ¼ inch slices. ( I like Al fresco roasted garlic chicken sausage with onion & herbs. Its also Gluten Free)
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter
½ tsp garlic chopped
1 bag of Gluten free brown rice spiral pasta (you may use any type of pasta)
juice of ¼ large lemon
½ tsp lemon zest
2 tsp basil pesto (or 1 tbsp fresh chopped basil)
salt to taste
1 tbsp fresh grated Parmesan cheese( to add on top of finished pasta)
Cook pasta. While pasta is cooking, sauté sausage until brown in large skillet on medium high heat with 1 tbsp oil, garlic & 1 tbsp butter. Remove from heat once brown. Drain pasta once it is tender. Don’t overcook. Add remaining ingredients to pasta and then add to skillet with sausage. Toss to mix. Serve immediately with fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top.
*This works great with any type of pasta, regular or whole wheat. You also may use a different type of sausage if you prefer.
