Weeknight Chicken Sausage Pasta

Weeknight chicken sausage pasta

This is such an easy weeknight meal and pure comfort food without being too heavy! I usually make enough for leftovers to have for lunch the next day. Chicken sausage with warm creamy pasta and peppery arugula topped with fresh Parmesan cheese (I use mozzarella for the boys because they don’t like “stinky cheese”).  Sharing my recipe below.

Course Main Course


  • 1 box pasta (I used shells because that's the boy's favorite)
  • olive oil (for heating the pan)
  • 2 packages roasted red pepper chicken sausage (I used alfesco brand) cut into rounds
  • 2 cups fresh arugula
  • 1/2 bottle Annie's goddess dressing
  • parmesean cheese


  • In a large pot, start to boil your water for pasta.
  • While your water is boiling, in a separate pan, heat a little olive oil and start to brown your sausage. Remove from heat once browned and set aside.
  • Once water comes to a boil, add your pasta and cook until al dente, then drain.
  • After draining your pasta, remove the pot from heat and add in pasta and sausage. Add a little oilve oil if needed so that the pasta doesn't stick together.
  • Mix in arugula and it will begin to wilt.
  • Stir in Goddess dressing (add more to taste if you wish).
  • Sprinkle with cheese and serve!

    This looks delicious! I’m not sure how many of my kids would eat it, but I’d probably eat all of it anyway as left overs so it wouldn’t matter. Is the particular type of sausage you used pretty spicy? I’ve never tried it before.
