This is actually a recipe I came up with for the Weight Watcher's diet. It's a version of one of my favorite types of dishes at Italian restaurants. To keep the WW points at 7 per serving, you should stick to the brands I list, as they are the lowest calorie counts I could find. This recipe makes 7 servings at 7 points per serving. Careful with the pepper flakes--a little goes a long way! Note: the nutrition information listed on the side of the recipe is probably inaccurate; this really is 7 points.

Directions

  1. Prepare pasta according to instructions on package.
  2. Saute mushrooms in non-stick skillet using Pam spray or equivalent. You'll probably have to do this in batches. Sprinkle a tiny pinch of nutmeg on the mushrooms while cooking.
  3. In another skillet, concurrently saute the sausage slices until lightly browned on each side.
  4. Add each batch of mushroom and sausage to a large bowl until the other components are ready.
  5. Pour the sauces into a sauce pot, add the red pepper flakes, and heat over medium heat, stirring often, until bubbling.
  6. Add the meat, mushrooms, and olives to the sauce. Stir frequently until bubbling again.
  7. Place drained pasta in pasta bowls, and ladle sauce over the top.

Delicious recipe. Could not find loveras brand sauce so I subbed organic sauce for that. Also opted to use organic smoked sausage. Served with barilla plus brand ziti noodles. It was very very good. I added quite a bit of red pepper flakes as I like things a bit hot. The flavors all went really well together and it was easy to make too. Thanks for sharing
