Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes

So this week if everyone couldn’t tell I did a little procrastinating. Ok the truth is I could not think of what I wanted to write. Well that is not exactly true. I had some ideas but, was not able to get it down on paper or better yet on the computer. So that is that as they say.

Well this week I decided to do something a little different. For those of you that don’t know I have a background in the foodservice industry working as a chef. So for the first time I am going to share with everyone one of my personally created meals.

This can be a bright, vibrant and colorful dish when done right. It is a great hardy fall meal. So I hope everyone gives this a try and enjoys the great flavors.
