Dairy Free Creamy Chicken Sausage and Pasta

Updated: Mar 27

Play on a creamy sausage and pasta dish. You'll be using ground meat of choice and making a sausage seasoning. You can of course use Italian sausage if you prefer. I use steamed broccoli, but of course, use what you have on hand. Peas, mushrooms, whatever vegetables your family likes.

You'll need:


Broccoli (peas, mushrooms, whatever veggie you have on hand)

1 pound of ground meat

1 can coconut milk/ equal amount of oatmilk

Chicken stock or reserved pasta water

1/3 cup butter or vegan butter

1/3 cup of flour



Fennel seeds

Dried parsley


Red pepper flakes




Onion powder

Boil your pasta: I prefer to use bowtie or rotini so the sauce and sausage really stick to the pasta. If you don't want to steam your vegetable separately, toss it in with the pasta the last 4 minutes or so and strain all together.

Make your sausage: While pasta is boiling- put oe pound of ground meat of choice (pictured here is ground chicken) in a bowl, add the following: garlic, dried parsley, paprika, fennel seeds, pepper, rosemary, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes, onion powder. I don't measure seasonings while cooking. We just let our ancestors whisper "Enough" really though, just toss a few shakes of each and mix it up. Once well combined drop it in a pan and brown it up. You can absolutely make the meat mixture the night before and let the flavors really get into the meat. Remove from pan

Make the sauce: To the same pan, add 1/3 cup of butter (I use homemade vegan butter found here , but my second choice is always vegan country crock sticks) to melt in the pan add some garlic and cook until fragrant. You can use fresh, powder, or paste here. If you are using paste, PLEASE double check the ingredients as quite a few pastes contain whey. Sometimes it depends on variation, smooth may be safe, chunky may not be. Add 1/3 cup of flour and cook for one minute. Add coconut or oatmilk, and chicken stock (or reserved pasta water) and stir until smooth. I also like to take the same spices used to make the sausage and season the sauce.

Assemble: Add the sausage back in, along with the drained pasta and steamed vegetable. If you find the sauce is too dry add a bit more stock or pasta water. Allow the dish to simmer for a few minutes before serving.

It really is a simple, cost effective dish that can come together in about half an hour or less.
