This is a meat sauce that shares top billing with tomatoes and greens. If you’re craving the taste of a sausage and peppers sub, substitute 2 diced Bell peppers and a chopped yellow onion for the arugula and enjoy.
Ingredients [ weight loss ]
2 large zucchinis
1 pound hot Italian turkey sausage
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
3 cups arugula or spinach leaves
¼ cup Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 tsp black pepper
- Using your Veggetti cutter, turn the zucchinis into narrow pasta strands. Heat or cook to your preferences.
- Brown sausage in the bottom of a large saucepan over medium heat until it is completely well-done. If bulk Italian sausage is not available in your grocery store, substitute, 4 links of Italian sausage with the casings removed.
- Stir in the arugula, tomatoes and garlic and cook until the greens are limp and the tomatoes start to break down, about 3-5 minutes. Cover and remove from heat.
- Mix the cheese with the “pasta” then add the meat sauce.
