Pesto & Sausage Pasta

By Cristie Will

Ingredients:




½-pound Angel hair pasta, uncooked
1-pound Hillshire® sausage, sliced
2-cups Broccoli florets
1-cup Sun dried tomatoes
7-ounces Pesto sauce (refrigerated best)
?-cup Grated Parmesan cheese
½-cup Pecans, chopped
½-teaspoon Salt
¼-teaspoon Pepper


Instructions:


Cook pasta according to directions on package in a medium pot. Add sausage, sun dried tomatoes, and broccoli to pasta during the last three minutes of cooking. Drain. Mix pasta mixture with pesto, chopped pecans, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper in a large serving bowl; mix well. Serve right away.


Makes 5 servings


Note: I have tried this dish with all kinds of the Hillshire® sausage and they are all good. This is also good without the sausage for all the veggie lovers. I have also made this dish with pepperoni slices and Mozzarella cheese and walnuts. This is delicious as is, but it's fun to change it up and experiment.
