      Pesto Orecchiette With Chicken Sausage Recipe I followed this recipe pretty much to a tee except I used the whole box of DeCecco orecchiette pasta and all four of Aidells Italian style smoke chicken sausage with mozzarella cheese. I also added about 1/3 cup plus about a tblsp. of pesto sauce. I also did salt and pepper to taste. I think the sausage needs to browned to get a nice crispness to it. My kids pick out the green beans but eat the peas. Trust me, use the orecchiette if you can find it.

      Pesto Orecchiette With Chicken Sausage. *Good & easy pasta dish! I loved that the green beans and peas, gave the pasta a really fresh taste. I didn't eat the chicken sausage, but my family did - they loved it!

      Orecchiette pasta with pesto, veggies and fresh chicken sausage. Comfort food in good balance. @Brittney Anderson Anderson Bolt I saw your post on facebook. This is our new favorite. I did a mixture of bowtie pasta and orzo instead of the Orecchiette.

      Pesto Orecchiette With Chicken Sausage. Super delicious!!! Notes for next time-cook green beans longer than directed, use a bit more pesto, and remember to buy a loaf of yummy, crunchy bread to accompany dinner! :)

    Aside from shameless product placement on Buzzfeed( two black strikes) now appearing on Pintrest ( a third?) some of these show promise. And blatant lack of whole grains. You can tell I'm excited.
