This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, read my full disclosure.

Today’s quick & easy pesto pasta with chicken sausage was inspired by… what I had in the pantry and refrigerator! 🙂

Honestly though, my food stores were running low and I needed to throw something together quickly because I was so NOT feeling like cooking dinner. (I mean, some days are rougher than others, ya know?)

Anywho, I had the chicken sausage on hand because I bought in on sale & decided to build a meal around the protein.

This pasta dish is decadent and filling without weighing you down!

Ingredients:

  • Chicken sausage, cut into 1/2 thick pieces
  • 8oz package sliced mushrooms
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp pesto, as desired
  • fettuccine noodles
  • 1 tsp olive oil

First, get a pot of water boiling to cook your fettuccine noodles. I made about 2 cups of noodles.

Then, heat a deep sided pan to medium, add olive oil, & cook your mushrooms and chicken sausage.

Stir occasionally until mushrooms become a nice brown color & soft (about 10 minutes).

Drain fettuccine noodles & add to pan.

Then add your pesto! I love it, so I used about 2 tablespoons.

This particular pesto was homemade with basil by my amazing mother! But store bought &/or pea would work well too. (Typing that made me feel like Ina Garten. haha)
