CAMPBELL’S® 30% Less Sodium Ready to Use Chicken   Broth

CAMPBELL’S® 30% Less Sodium Ready to Use Chicken Broth



  • 1 lb (454 g) Italian sausage, casings removed 
  • 1 carton CAMPBELL’S® 30% Less Sodium Ready to Use Chicken Broth
  • 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) Dried Gemelli  pasta (Fiorelli, Chiocciole or other short pasta)
  • 2 cups (500 mL) fresh spring  peas or other seasonal vegetable 
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) divided, grated  Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon zest
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) fresh parsley


  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium high heat, breaking up with the back of a spoon until browned and no pink remains, about 6 minutes.
  2. Stir in broth, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil and stir in pasta. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer; cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Stir in peas, ¼ cup Parmesan and cream until heated through, about 2 minutes. Top with remaining ¼ cup Parmesan, lemon zest, and fresh parsley. 

Recipe tips

Replace the peas with any vegetable you have on hand.

    Not bad

    I had the opposite problem..not enough liquid. Next time I will cut back on the pasta slightly. I also made this with regular pork sausage, but next time will cook it with the Italian sausage; might even add an extra little bit of sausage. All in all it was a good recipe to try, and my kids ate all their dinner, so that was a win!

    More stew than pasta

    The taste of this is good but there is too much liquid at the end of the cooking time. Despite adding a ¼ cup more pasta and letting it simmer much longer than specified, there was more liquid left after all was done than I would have expected in a dish that was a pasta rather than a stew or soup. If I made it again, I would probably put only 700 ml of the chicken stock.
