• In a medium sized pot fill with water and bring to a boil. Add the spaghetti with a dash of salt and cook until al dente. Strain pasta and reserve 1/2 cup of the water. In a large stainless steal pan heat the olive oil on medium to low heat. Chop the chicken sausage (we used the spicy chicken sausage from Trader Joes, very inexpensive and so delicious!). Cook the sausage according to the cooking directions on the package (Cooking directions vary depending on which one you choose).

• Dice the garlic and shallots and add to the pan and cook until browned. About 2-3 minutes stirring constantly. Add the pasta with the reserved water and begin to mix the ingredients with tongs. Next add the grated parmesan cheese, mixing well as to not let it clump while melting.

• Finely chop the parsley and it to the pasta with the olives. Continue to mix until well combined. We also added the zest of 1 lemon and the juice of half of the lemon which helps balance out the flavors. Salt and pepper to taste. garnish with grated parmesan and chopped basil.

    Any suggestions for a sub for the olives? My fam hates them. Thanks!

    designlovefest says:

    hmm, maybe just leave them out and add more lemon instead? the olives are acidic and cut the flavor so the lemon would do the same. also, adding capers would be a nice addition as well!

    I loved making this recipe last night! My husband and I devoured it! I would like to make a suggestion in the layout of the recipe. Can you add what needs to be done to each ingredient (i.e. chop, juice, etc) in the ingredients list? That would make the prep work much faster and easier. Cheers!
