Pasta with Italian Chicken Sausage, Peppers and Escarole

This hearty Italian pasta dish has plenty of flavor without all the added fat of traditional pork sausage. Quick, easy and delicious!

This recipe was shared with me by a former coworker and I’ve been looking forward to making this for weeks because I’m a huge fan of escarole!
