Sausage and Seafood Pasta

Sausage and Seafood Pasta copyOur very own Taylor has been busy in the test kitchen and put together this easy yet delicious pasta dish with spicy sausage and seafood.  The simple flavors all combine for a hearty and fragrant main dish.  Give it a try and let us know what you think!

Any seafood can be used in this pasta according to your preference (substitute in shrimp, scallops, etc. instead of the clams or calamari if you like).  Precooked/frozen seafood can be used to speed things up as well.
