Totally made up chicken sausage pasta recipe

Saute in a little olive oil:
one chopped sweet onion
Add some minced or chopped garlic
add 2 links spicy (hot) chicken sausage with meat removed from skins.
When chicken is almost cooked, add 1 chopped red bell pepper and maybe another type of pepper to add interest.
Keep sauteing until the onions start to carmelize everything.
Add fresh basil, salt and pepper (fresh basil is an important ingredient)

I served over pasta topped with grated parmigiano-reggiano. Delish.
Also would be good without the pasta and wrapped in a flatbread.
For a little juicier pasta you could add some roma tomatoes after everything has carmelized.

Very great Mary. I sometimes make this into a Mexican flavor wrap with black beans and chopped cilantro. Love it.

Hope all is well for you.

Yum! That sounds good, too. Guess I'll buy some more chicken sausage. It seems like my cilantro plant doubled after yesterday's rain.
