Recipe: Rotini with Spicy Mango Jalapeno Chicken Sausage

How does that saying go – Necessity is the mother of invention? Well, I created this recipe a few years ago out of sheer necessity. I just had my daughter, hadn’t been to the grocery store in weeks and needed to make a quick dinner for hubby before he gets home from work. My daughter was finally sleeping, so I didn’t want to disturb her by getting her up and heading to the store so I did what any self-respecting accidental cook would do. I looked around the kitchen for anything I could find that was palatable and voilà this baby was invented. It was easy to make, and hubby enjoyed it, so I added it to our rotation.

    It looks pretty good. Add some crusty bread and salad and it would be a great dinner.
