    Default Pasta with Sausage, Colorful Peppers and Arugula

    Pasta with Sausage, Colorful Peppers and Arugula

    1 package Trader Joe’s sweet Italian chicken sausages cut into 1” rounds*
    3 peppers (combo of red, yellow, orange recommended), seeded and thinly sliced
    1 large onion cut in half and thinly sliced
    2 tbsp minced garlic
    2 tsp extra-virgin olive or macadamia nut oil
    1 bunch or 6 cups arugula torn
    1 cup fat-free low-sodium packaged or homemade chicken stock
    8 oz whole wheat fasilli pasta cooked al dente (I like Bionaturae brand)
    3 oz Pecorino Romano cheese

    Sauté the sausages in a skillet with 1 tsp oil until brown. Remove and do the same with the peppers, onion and garlic with the rest of the oil until veggies are tender. Stir in the broth, season with salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a simmer, cook 2 minutes. Add the sausage and arugula. Add cooked pasta and combine. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.

    Serves 4 @ 8 points each

    * = if you do not have access to TJ's sub cooked lower-fat turkey or chicken kielbasa or cooked low-fat andouille sausage if you can find it. Points will vary with any substitutions.
