Add asparagus heads to the sausage and continue sauteing for 7 minutes or until asparagus heads are tender. I added some of the asparagus stems just because I really love asparagus. Add salt and pepper to taste In a deep pan, boil chicken broth and cook pasta according to box. Once that is cooked, and you have your drained pasta, it’s time to
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet.. oh, wait. sorry! So, mix in the sausage with the asparagus, sliced olives, the Traditional Red Sauce, Galbani cheese and mix until all is covered with the sauce.

Barilla stands for the joy of healthy and pleasurable eating, in the believing that Italian pasta is the best recipe for good living, as it provides the perfect canvas for a nutritious meal.

As I was cooking this, the kids kept stopping by the stove, asking when it will be done. And one may or may not have picked at the cheese while they were waiting.

The simplicity of this recipe, along with WalMart’s prices makes this dish tasty and affordable. Let’s be honest, how many times have we been to WalMart for grocery shopping this month? My trips increase has the holidays come around. Plus Barilla pastas and Galbani Brand cheeses are easy to find. Did you know that Galbani is the #1 Cheese Brand in Italy? YUM! Oh, and the cheese strands when you’re eating and pulling away with
the fork from your plate? Long and cheesy!

Plus get $2 back when you buy Barilla pasta and sauce and Galbani Cheese at Walmart from Ibotta!

Happy Holidays!
