Chicken & Sausage Marsala

Saw this lovely pasta dish on from Chef Dennis on Pinterest a while ago, and thought I would finally make it. Being a lover of Marsala “anything”, I knew it would be delicious. I just didn’t think it would be so easy! And what I really like about it, is it is portioned for 2 people. Most recipes aren’t, so if you don’t like the recipe, you have wasted a lot of expensive ingredients. However, I really don’t think you will have that problem, if you like Marsala in buttery rich sauce, tender and sweet Italian sausage.
