Sausage and Shrimp Pasta

The first time I made this Sausage and Shrimp Pasta company stopped by and being Italian I needed to serve food. I had just made sausage the night before and had doubled the batch for another meal. I also had a bag of uncooked shrimp in my freezer and this dish easily and quickly came together.

You can use any pasta or even spaghetti squash or enjoy over roasted vegetables. Enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails removed)
