Italian Chicken Sausage over Fettucine

I love Italian food! This recipe has plenty of flavor from the Pomodoro Fresco sauce and the chicken sausage alone! I added green pepper and onions…found those in the fridge, and I found the chicken sausage in my freezer. I always keep some kind of italian sauce in my pantry (in case Josh has to cook for himself when I’m not home) and I always have seasonings and other “flavor” added items. This dish was very flavorful with a lil kick to it and we both truly said that this was gonna become a favorite! Please enjoy this recipe and let me know what you think! 🙂
