Skinny Pasta with Sausage, Peppers, Onions & Mushrooms
Fusilli pasta tossed with Italian sausage and peppers , onions and mushrooms in marinara sauce. Quick, easy and delicious!
When I want to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less, I often turn to recipes like this quick and easy pasta dish. The sauce comes together in about the time it takes to boil water and cook the pasta.
In addition to having great flavor, this pasta also got a lot less fat because it uses fully cooked Italian turkey sausage instead of pork. Experiment until you find a flavor and brand that your satisfied with.
I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
