Healthy Sausage Pasta Recipe

Hi bunnies! I’ve had another VERY long hiatus but I am back! I am on a quest to lose a bit of weight, so I do want to put up some healthy recipes. When people think of restricting what they eat, they think that flavor can’t be a part of it, which is not true. This is a really easy recipe that requires just a few ingredients and gets in a lot of nutrition and veggies.

Ingredients:

  1. Tomato sauce (preferably vegetable or organic; they tend to have more nutritional value) you can also substitute this with diced tomatoes.
  2. Turkey Sausage
  3. 1 Onion
  4. 1 bag of spinach
  5. Farfali Pasta (can be whole wheat; that’s even better!)
  6. Canola Spray
  7. Oregano
  8. Red Pepper Flakes
  9. Basil
  10. Parsley

Steps:

  1. Start to boil water in the small deep pan for the pasta. Put large deep saucepan on low-medium heat and pour 1 teaspoon of olive oil, or a bit of canola spray.
  2. Chop up sausage and put into the deep large saucepan; cover the pan and let the sausage brown.
  3. Chop vegetables; set aside.
  4. Start to put spices and herbs into the pan with the sausage
  5. Wait till sausage is browned, then put in the vegetables. Cover pan once again for about 2 minutes. Stir.
  6. While pasta is cooking, pour tomato sauce into the deep saucepan with the veggies and sausage and let simmer for about 5 minutes.
  7. Drain pasta and serve.
