Pasta with Chicken Sausage and Veggies

Submitted by: ROSIE_POSIE85

Introduction

This is a dinner staple in my home. I usually make this once a week. I will usually only eat about 2/3 of my portion and save the rest for a lunch sometime during the week.

    2 cups sliced fresh button mushrooms
    2 cups diced zucchini
    1/2 cup diced sweet red peppers

Tips

You can use whatever fresh, or frozen, veggies you have in hand. The important part is just to make sure that there are veggies you love in this dish, to make it hearty and filling!


Directions

Cook pasta according to directions, set aside.
Brown chicken sausage, breaking into chucks as it cooks. Once fully cooked set aside on paper towels to drain.
Cook mushrooms until they are browned and release most of their liquids.
Add zucchini and red peppers with mushroom and saute until they start to brown a little, about 2 minutes.
Add sauce back to veggies, add in pasta sauce and cooked pasta. Cook until heated through.
