Pasta Bake with roasted vegetables and sausage
Trying to come up with a healthier version.
Whole grain pasta and quinoa, roasted eggplant, peppers, mushrooms and onion, with canned tomatos vs. tomato sauce, and use half ground turkey (6 oz) drained of fat, and half hot sausage (6 oz) drained of fat, crumbled and pressed between towels to remove more fat.
This is a bit time consuming, but the vegetables retain some of their 'meatier' texture and full flavor and the extra steps in defatting the meat helps reduce the overall fat (which isn't shown in the nutrition info since I don't know how to show this in adding the ingredients). The little bit of cheese doesn't seem like much, but if it's very finely grated and stirred in, it will add to the richness of the overall dish. Submitted by: CCKELLY3
