Smoked Turkey Sausage With Pasta

"I found this recipe in the Febuary/March 2003 issue of Taste of Home's Light and Tasty. I was very pleased with the results when I made it. The leftovers are even better. This comes out to 5 points for a 1 1/4 serving. Enjoy!"

    I just made this today, and it was very quick to come together, and so full of flavor! Like several other reviewers, I made just a few changes, but kept the integrity of the base recipe intact. I used a 13 oz. box of Dreamfield's low carb pasta (because two of the people I made it for are diabetic. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it; it tastes exactly like regular pasta, but doesn't raise blood sugar) and substituted some julienned sun dried tomatoes (packed in oil) instead of the plum tomatoes. I added a couple pinches of crushed red peppers too. And topped it off with some shredded Parmesan cheese. The dish was colorful with the fresh spinach against the red of the tomato and sausage, and the browned mushrooms. I did increase the garlic to 3 cloves from 2. And deleted the basil. This recipe is definitely a keeper, and I'll be making it again, for sure! Thanks Amber!!!

    Although I had to sub quite a bit , the end result was basicly the same and was very tasty.Had to use wide noodles, regular turkey sausage, canned stewed tomatoes and veggie spray instead of oil. Also had some spinach to use up which I added, all in all it made a very good one pan supper, I did cook the sausage first, then drained the fat from the pan, while draining the sausage on paper towel before cutting them up. Thanks for the basic idea, next time I'll try and use the proper ingredients.

    For being so easy and with so few ingredients, this is delicious. I used Hunt's diced tomatoes with garlic, basil and oregano instead of fresh tomatoes. Usually when I make a recipe for the first time it takes me longer than it should because of the unfamiliarity of the recipe, but this went so fast. I had dinner on the table in 20 minutes. This is easy and delicious.

    I was looking for something fast with what minimal ingredients I have on hand. This fit the bill. Chopped up about three roma tomatoes and grilled them with the sausage and basil. Skipped the mushrooms (I don't care for them). Threw in some fresh spinach and let it cook for a couple of minutes. Will probably add onions next time while cooking sausage. Love the ease and flavor of this recipe. Thanks!

    This was so quick to make and it was so fresh and delicious! Everyone in my family enjoyed it. I added Peroni beer to the pan of sauteed mushrooms and garlic to make a light sauce.

    I didn't have all the ingredients. Used thin spaghetti instead of angel hair and canned mushrooms instead of fresh. It was real good anyway.

    I made this tonight! I used fresh basil instead of dried, and opted to leave out the olive oil althogether. Delicious! Easy! A keeper:)


<p>I live in Arizona. Cooking is a relaxing hobby and I love finding healthy meals that have a lot of flavor and heart to them. Recipezaar has not let me down. I could not possibly pick a favorite cookbook. I love searching used bookstores for old cookbooks. I collect other cookbooks that look intresting or have healthy dishes. My collection is modest, but I love it. Also, I love the Taste of Home magazines. They have real food that real people cook. I would have to say my pet peeves are people who drive while talking on cell phones and people who cannot spell potato. It is p o t a t o not p o t a t o e. There is no e unless you are spelling the plural form of potato which is potatoes. I frequently see that word mispelled in recipes and it makes me think the recipe is somehow devalued because of the spellings. The Zaar system of ratings works for me. I do try to explain myself in my reviews and welcome any questions or comments on what I have said. It is not my intention to be mean-spirited if I did not like something (it is rare for me not to like a recipe though):) Recipezaar brings such a nice element to my life and I feel it has been enriched by the wealth of knowledge both in everyone's contributed recipes and on the forums. Also, it is such a nice feature that you can log on practically any time to get help with a recipe or ingredient that might otherwise be imtimidating to prepare by yourself.</p>
