Tomato Basil Pasta with Spicy Chicken Sausage 

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I have done a blog post, but I’m excited to be back!😊 I thought that I would start off with something simple to come back with. This recipe is perfect for meal prep at the beginning of the week, or just a quick and easy dinner to make after a long day. Originally I found a plant based recipe similar to this on the blog Apron Strings. I decided to modify if to how my family and I like it, and I’m so happy with the results! Feel free to add or take out any ingredients that you would like.😊 Let’s get to the recipe! 


  • 12 oz organic penne pasta 
  • 5 cups chicken broth 
  • 1 (15oz) can fire roasted diced tomatoes 
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning 
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped 
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 2 Trader Joe’s spicy Italian chicken sausage links, sliced 1/2 inch thick


  • In a large pot combine all ingredients except basil, then stir
  • Cover and bring to a boil
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stir frequently 

This recipe is inspired by the blog Apron Strings 

Thanks for reading!!! Have a wonderful day!😘
