What is the best sausage to use?
Most pasta dishes I make I use Italian sausage in them. When I first made this recipe, I debated whether to use “regular sausage” like the recipe said (you know, like Jimmie Dean that comes in a tube), or Italian sausage. I opted for the regular and absolutely loved it! I am sure Italian sausage would be delicious as well, but I have always just stuck with using good old “regular” sausage.Print
