I enjoy using spicy organic chicken sausage to create this robust and savory pasta sauce. Add some healthy whole wheat penne, and dinner is served. I like adding Garbanzo beans, but any bean is delicious. Don’t fret on ingredients with this recipe; toss in whatever is in the crisper drawer in the fridge. Be sure to serve this outstanding pasta dish with a well-structured, elegant Sangiovese like Madonna Nera Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello’s sexy brother.
