Can I Reheat Chicken and Sausage Pasta?

Absolutely! You can microwave it of course, but to maintain flavor and moisture, I love to throw it back in a skillet on the stove with a tablespoon of butter and a splash of chicken stock, whole milk, or half and half to make it nice and creamy again. Revives the flavors in a just a few minutes stirred over medium-high heat.

What goes well with chicken sausages?

Anything you would typically use with pork sausage, you can substitute with chicken sausage! Of course it goes well with pasta, but also sautéed with peppers and onions and served on rolls is another favorite dinner of ours. Grilling chicken sausage brings out a whole new flavor profile as well!

Can you freeze this recipe?

I would not recommend freezing this as a finished recipe, but you could definitely freeze the fresh tomato sauce to be ready at a later time. Just thaw in the fridge overnight before cooking in this dish – though I would argue that just cooking the sauce from fresh tomatoes would probably be quicker!

What brand of chicken sausage do you recommend?

I’ve honestly used several brands for this recipe, but use what is available at your store! I do like the Coleman brand and I generally try to grab that if I can find it. If you can find Italian seasoned chicken sausage, that would make the flavor even better in this meal!

Begin by gathering and prepping all of the ingredients according to the ingredients list above to have them organized and ready for use.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and prepare 3 small squares of foil for garlic heads.

Cut the tops off of the 3 heads of garlic, drizzle each with about 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and sprinkle on a pinch of salt. Wrap each garlic head tightly in a small piece of foil, and roast in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven, unwrap the heads and allow to cool, then squeeze the cloves from the papers and smash lightly with a fork to form a paste; set aside to use in sauce.

In a large, heavy-bottom pan or pot, add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil; once hot, add the diced chicken sausage and cook until golden-brown; then, add the diced onion and sauté for about 2 minutes. Now, add the garlic, the Italian seasoning, the oregano and the pinch of red pepper flakes, and give a stir, allowing to become aromatic.

Once aromatic, add the red wine and deglaze the pan, gently scraping all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan; then, stir in the tomato paste and allow it to cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute to cook out the raw flavor.

Add in the diced tomatoes with juices, the reserved roasted garlic paste, a couple of good pinches of salt and the black pepper, and allow the sauce to simmer, slightly covered, for about 20 minutes.


Prepare the penne pasta according to package instructions; then, drain and keep warm.

While penne cooks and sauce simmers, combine the panko breadcrumbs with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a small bowl, and use your fingers or a fork to incorporate together. In a small pan set over medium-low heat, add the breadcrumbs and toast, continually stirring, for about 1-2 minutes being careful not to burn the breadcrumbs.

Once the breadcrumbs are golden brown, remove from the pan and add back into the small dish; add the lemon zest, 1 tablespoon of the chopped parsley and the grated parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs, combine well with your fingers of a fork, then set aside to use as a garnish/topping for pasta.

To finish the sauce, turn heat off and stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of the chopped parsley and 1 tablespoon of the chopped basil; next, add the warm, cooked penne directly into the sauce, and toss to coat. (Alternately, you can spoon the sauce over top of the penne.)

To serve, spoon the chicken sausage pasta into a bowl, and garnish with about 2-3 tablespoons of the breadcrumbs, and a sprinkling of the remaining 2 tablespoons of chopped basil.
