Sausage pasta cooked in a skillet

This pasta i discovered when i was looking on a website and the technique that they used to cook the pasta i never saw before and it turned out great. You don’t cook the pasta in a bunch o water and then drain it, you you cook it in a little bit of chicken stoke until the liquid evaporates and you keep adding more and more chicken stoke until the pasta is fully cooked. And since it is cooked in chicken stoke it gives it a lot better flavor. Our family loves caste iron skillets. They never brake, you can never lose them because they are so heavy and they are so easy to wash. That is way we cook this pasta in a skillet.
