Step-by-Step

  1. prepare pasta drizzle with 2 tsp olive oil and set aside.
  2. defrost frozen veggies in microwave then toss with pasta.
  3. Toss sausage pieces in hot, medium sized sauce pan for a few minutes to sweat out the sausage a little bit, then add the milk slowly. With a wire whisk add the 2 packets of sauce mix and then the olive oil.
