Chicken Sausage Tagliatelle




This past week I had the honor of sampling Jovial Foods gluten-free Tagliatelle pasta
What a treat! Even if I was not eating gluten-free, I would want to buy their pasta instead of the nasty enriched pasta sold at the market. 

Jovial™ gluten free products were developed in Italy, out of a heartfelt compassion for all of us who have had a food intolerance critically effect personal health and wellness. Jovial believes eating gluten free should be pleasurable and not feel like a sacrifice. 

When I saw this pasta, I thought; "oh boy, this is gonna be a comfort food night!". 
I got busy. Walked to Jimbo's for the finest produce and some spicy free range chicken sausage. Thanks to my herb garden I had plenty of fresh basil. 
This dish came together effortlessly and disappeared fast. Boy was I right about comfort food. This pasta is so decadent. I love it! So go ahead. Enjoy pasta again! 
You can get jovial pasta here and at a lot of health food stores, like Jimbo's, whole foods, vitacost etc.
