Creamy and chunky pasta fare
The Mixed Stew suggests substituting ground beef we used for ground pork, ground pork sausage, or even Italian sausage. Wanna more of a smokey flavor? Try adding sliced andouille, kielbasa, or linguica instead of ground meat. Seafood suggestions include calamari, clams, or even mussels. Remember that you can also make a light cream sauce using 1 ½ cups of half-n-half and at least 2/3 cups of your favorite shredded cheese. Lastly, substitute the rotini with penne, farfalline, or penne rigate.
