"Very delicious and filling!!! I used that Aidell's Italian style chicken sausage, and 8oz. of Quinoa/Corn rotini pasta, and this was amazing! It has a bit of spice to it, so we absolutely loved it! I wanted to eat much more than I did, but it's just so HEARTY! Several elements in this dish come together to create a party in your mouth. A party that you'll want to make again in a few weeks!"
