Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Use any pasta that you choose. I opt for a bite size pasta. 
  • You can easily make this gluten free by using gluten free pasta and chicken broth. This might alter your cooking time a bit. 
  • Add even more flavor by halving cherry tomatoes and tossing them in when you add the parmesan cheese. 
  • Choose the sausage that fits your family’s taste. If you love a little heat be sure to use spicy sausage. 
  • If you prefer beef you can swap out the sausage for ground beef.
