I thought this was a really good dish! I didn't have whole wheat pasta, so I just used regular pasta. I also omitted the chick peas because I just didn't have them. Overall a delicious dish that I will make again! Yum!!
I thought this was okay. I would have preferred more of a sauce instead of a medley of ingredients, and a spicier kick instead of just in the sausage. The chick peas were odd too. Maybe it would have been better as a cold pasta salad.
I thought this was excellent! Really easy too!
Delicious recipe and would absolutely make this again! I was expecting the jalapeno sausage to be spicier but it's got a nice flavor. The only changes I made was that I added about a cup of chicken broth to the pan because I didn't have any pasta water (I had made pasta earlier in the day) and I added about 1/4 cup of heavy cream and it made a really nice sauce for the sausage and veggies.
Loved this recipe! I would definitely make again! Such a great combination of flavors! The only change I made was to substitute broccoli for the asparagus(we don't like). Other than that, made as written!
I used a pasta trio (not whole wheat), artichoke hearts instead of asparagus, and asiago cheese grated over the top....not bad!
This recipe was delicious and I will make it again. Since we don't have Al Fresco in our area, I had to substitute another chicken sausage but otherwise followed the recipe for the most part. I did not have asparagus but used a dry shredded broccoli slaw that I had. I also used whole penne instead of whole wheat shell pasta. I would have used Al Fresco if it was sold in our area.
This was a huge hit with the family! I didn't use Whole Wheat Pasta (never do) and I would have preferred if there had been a sauce. But the sausage was great!
