Chicken and Andouille Pasta

Chicken and Andouille Pasta

Rotini pasta can be used, but I would  use other pastas that have little  cracks and crevices in them.  I use the curly pastas because those are the kind that will hold all this great mouthwatering sauce.  Don't use a fettuccine or spaghetti because if you do all the sauce ends up in the bottom of the plate.
