Quinoa Pesto Pasta with Chicken Sausage

I found inspiration for this recipe from a Real Simple recipe I found through Pinterest, but I wanted to do my own take on it. We used quinoa pasta shells instead of orecchiette and cooked asparagus instead of green peas, which aren’t my favorite. While the quinoa pasta tasted the same as regular pasta, we would recommend using a bigger noodle with this dish. The shells were too small and we got frustrated trying to scoop all the shells onto our forks.

I like this dish because it is easy to manipulate to your liking. You can use whatever type of sausage you like as well as whatever leftover veggies you may have in the fridge. Although we ate this as a side dish, it is definitely filling enough for a main course.
