So I saw this recipe a few weeks ago and just had to try but I made a few alterations that I feel many people will appreciate and enjoy even better...Instead of regular Italian Sausage I used Chicken Sausage, Kale instead of spinach,vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and ditalini instead of rotini. I have to say I absolutely loved it and my co workers truly enjoyed it as well. My daughter, who is 10 years old today and my 3 year old devoured it!!!

So good, family pleaser. I use a different pasta though. Cellentani by Barilla it doesn't soak up all the broth like rotini does when you have leftovers.

I guess I was not paying attention when I was buying the ingredients and bought ground Italian Sausage. It was good. I think that is what I will use when I make it again. My whole family really liked it.
