SCREWY NOODLE AND SAUSAGE STEW

MY HUSBAND HAS A WAY WITH WORDS!

bakedd greek chicken (4)

12 OZ HOT ITALIAN SAUSAGE (YOU CAN USE TURKEY OR CHICKEN SAUSAGE)
12 OZ CORK SCREW PASTA (ROTINI – I USED WHOLE WHEAT)
1 GARLIC CLOVE, MINCED
1/2 ONION, SLICED
BUTTERNUT SQUASH, CUT INTO 1/2″ CUBES
1/2 CUP CHICKEN BROTH
1 TBSP BASIL (I USED GOURMET GARDEN BASIL PASTE)
1/2 CUP SHREDDED ITALIAN BLEND CHEESE

I PUT THE SAUSAGE, GARLIC, ONION, SQUASH AND CHICKEN BROTH IN MY CROCK POT AND COOKED ON LOW 5 HOURS. THEN I CUT UP THE SAUSAGE AND RETURNED IT TO THE POT AND STIRRED IN THE BASIL. COOK THE PASTA AS DIRECTED (OR YOU COULD TRY THE NO WAITING FOR IT TO BOIL METHOD (http://wp.me/p3CD01-xw) AND DRAIN. SERVE THE SAUSAGE MIXTURE OVER NOODLES AND TOP WITH SHREDDED CHEESE.

THIS RECIPE ALSO CALLED FOR SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE BUT WITH THE HOT SAUSAGE THERE WAS NO NEED FOR IT. I ALSO ADDED A MEDIUM ZUCCHINI THAT I NEEDED TO USE OR LOSE.

EXCELLENT WITH A BIG FRESH SALAD!
