Caprese Pasta with Sausage
(makes 6 servings)
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Place the sausage in
the skillet and add the chicken broth. The broth will come to a boil;
simmer in the broth over medium high heat, until the sausage is cooked
through, about 15 minutes. When it is cooked through, slice diagonally
into bite-sized pieces.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the directions on the box and prepare the remainder of the ingredients.Drain the pasta, then toss with the melted butter or olive oil - you only need enough to add a little flavor and to prevent the pasta from sticking. Add the cheese, tomatoes, basil and sausage; season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Drizzle with a little balsamic vinegar, if desired.
