Chicken sausage makes the best pasta. This version of chicken sausage pasta features Italian chicken sausage, al dente Fettuccine noodles, sun-dried tomatoes, and a creamy, lemony white wine sauce. The pasta is finished with fresh baby mozzarella pearls, so you only need vegan garlic bread or butter bread to complete the meal. Overall, Chicken Sausage Pasta is a comforting and truly delicious meal.
