Good Eating Monday: Chunky Basil Pesto Chicken Kielbasa Pasta Sauce

Today's recipe is a random creation of my own:
 Chunky Basil Pesto Chicken Kielbasa Pasta Sauce!
It calls for a large can of diced tomatoes instead of a tomato sauce. Just mix it up in a skillet and serve of spaghetti noodles! 
Also the Kielbasa for this can be either
 
Hillshire Farm  Basil Pesto Chicken Smoked Kielbasa
 or
 Hillshire Farm Chicken Smoked Roasted Garlic Keilbasa.
 I prefer Basil Pesto for the best Italian flavor.
The photo is mine of the this sauce in my iron skillet!

I happened to have 1 cup of frozen broccoli in the fridge when I made this I wanted to use up, but no mushrooms on hand.
Some nice sliced Portabella mushrooms would've been yummy!
