I wanted something a little different for dinner - and I wanted pasta - but I didn't want plain ol' spaghetti tonight..... Well this is what I came up with... I saw a similar recipe, which gave me the idea - but I altered it to my own taste. Turned out so good! It is low in calories and high in protein -- Check it out!
2 links Buffalo Style Chicken Sausage (I used Al Fresco)
1 cup Barilla Piccolini Zucchini & Spinach Pasta wheels
2tbsp Fat Free Ranch Dressing (I used Hidden Valley)
a few strips raw green pepper (diced)
2-3tbsp onion (diced)
1/8 cup Part Skim Shredded Mozzarella (I used Great Value)
Heat frying pan over med-high heat, and cook Sausage.
While sausage is cooking, boil water, add pasta, cook until tender, then drain.
Remove Sausages and let cool for a minute or two. Keep stove on, and add peppers & onions to pan -- sautee until tender.
Slice sausages into 1/2 inch slices.
Put in bowl, add pepeprs, onions, and ranch dressing. Toss to blend.
Divy pasta up into two bowls. Top pasta with sausage/veggie/ranch mixture.
Divide cheese between two bowls and sprinkle on top.
