3 Tomato Basil Chicken Sausages
1 box Pasta di Aldo Pappardelle
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 to 3/4 cup Guido’s Own Pesto
Parmigiano Reggiano, for serving
1. Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Add the sausages, reduce the heat to medium, and cook until firm and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove the sausages from the water and cut them into bite-sized rounds.
2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Scoop out 1/4 cup of the pasta water and drain the pasta through a colander. Transfer the pasta to a large serving bowl.
3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the sausage to the pasta. Stir in 1/2 cup of pesto, thinning it with a bit of pasta water if necessary. Taste, and add more pesto if needed. Serve with cheese.
