Paleo Pesto "Pasta " with sausages

Paleo Pesto “Pasta ” with sausages

When I saw this recipe on Jane’s healthy kitchen , I was extremely excited to try it out. I picked up a whole pack of fresh basil and was wondering what to make. I could never grow tired of the smell of the fresh basil , somehow the presence of basil in my fridge makes me feel like i’m in Gourmet heaven. Jane has used some sauteed chicken in her recipe , while I tried to use the Chicken sausages in this recipe. I have adapted this beautiful recipe this way.

    • Thank you Debbie! Oh you are so right about the Basil addiction…I had some additional Pesto sauce from this batch…and was thinking of something with chicken or veggies…and I can’t think of what exactly to try!

  1. I have always wanted to try the paleo diet, as I eat off the farm and I cannot grow grains or legumes, but I could never do without the dairy products after all I milk a cow!! So hmm, I wonder if I should make the celi diet and paleo diet with milk. I love basil too, i cannot grow enough of it. Basil is the scent of summer.. have a lovely day.. c

    • You are so lucky to eat the best and fresh food….to be very honest , I havent been able to stick to a 100 % strict paleo diet.I need my daily cup of Indian tea and that is impossible to make without a little milk. So , I think I am more or less inching closer towards having the right balance that works for me…Thank you for stopping by :)
