Spicy Chicken Sausage and Veggies with Whole Wheat Pasta
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 package Organic Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage, sliced (I used Bilinsky’s)
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1 large zucchini, sliced
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 box whole wheat pasta
Chopped basil and oregano for garnish
Grated parmesan cheese for garnish
WHAT TO DO:
Set a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Cook pasta to package directions. Be sure to salt your water before you put your pasta in! Cook to al dente, then drain water and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Toss in your sausage and cook until nicely browned. About 7 minutes or so.
Once your sausage is nice and browned, add in your zucchini, onions, and garlic. Season with S&P. Allow to cook for about 5 minutes or so, until your veggies start to soften up.
After your veggies are soft add in your pasta sauce and bring mixture up to a boil. Once it boil, knock it back to a simmer and wait until your pasta is ready.
Combine your whole wheat pasta with the sauce and serve.
Top with chopped herbs and cheese.
