Recipe by Chef Annie Z
We developed this recipe after we had something similar at an upscale Italian Restaurant. We made it the way we like it. It is simple, the kids love it and you can play with the ingredients to your liking.

I used chicken sausage already seasoned with spinach and feta, so I can't comment on the recipe spice-wise. However, the concept of this recipe was great. I followed directions except for adding the spices and used heavy cream instead bc that's all I had. My suggestion is don't add all the cream at once, just like the instructions said.
- 10 chicken sausage (Asiago, spinach and chicken sausage from Sam's Club) or 10 Italian sausages, if you can't find the other
- 1 1⁄2 large onions, diced
- 6 fresh garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 large tomatoes, diced
- 16 ounces farfalle pasta
- 2 ounces fresh basil
- 4 ounces of kraft shredded parmesan cheese, romano and Asiago cheeses (if you can find all in one, otherwise use what you have)
- 1 quart half-and-half cream
- garlic salt
- shallot salt (Penzey's)
- roasted garlic seasoning (Tones Brand)
- red pepper flakes
- black pepper
