Healthy and flavorful chicken sausages cooked with a tomato based sauce make a delicious pasta meal!




  1. Coat a skillet with oil spray, and heat a large skillet on medium high. Add the Premio Spicy Italian Chicken Sausages. Cook for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally, to cook the sausages. Remove the sausages when browned, and set aside on a plate to cool. *See notes about an option for the sausage preparation.
  2. Add the olive oil to the same skillet used to brown the sausage, and heat on medium. Add the onions, and cook for about 5 minutes until softened.
  3. Stir the garlic into the skillet, and cook for about 1 minutes.
  4. As the onion cooks, cut the sausages into circle slices about 1/2 inch thick. Note the sausages are not cooked through at this point, and they may break apart a bit as you cut them. That is fine!
  5. Add the sausage slices to the skillet, stir to combine with the onions. Stir in the red wine, and cook until the wine is reduced by roughly one half, which will take about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in the diced tomatoes and add the red pepper flakes, and salt to taste. Bring the sauce to a simmer on medium heat. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and adjusting the heat if needed to keep the sauce gently simmering. Toward the end of the cooking time, stir the beans into the sauce.
  7. As the Premio Sausages cook in the tomato sauce, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the pasta, and cook according to package instructions.
  8. When the pasta is cooked to your liking, drain the pasta, then toss it immediately with the sausage and tomato sauce. Add the Parmigiano cheese and basil, stirring to combine. Plate the Spicy Chicken Sausage Pasta and enjoy! Pass extra cheese at the table for serving.
