I love this recipe. It is super tasty and is high in mass building, complex carbohydrates. This meal is great for those days you need to power up some big time weight. Have this recipe two hours before a big squat workout and you'll be powering up the weight.
The original recipe calls for pork sausage and white bow tie pasta. However, I've modified this recipe to make it much healthier. This is a very easy to make recipe that takes about 10 to 15 minutes to prepare and about 10 minutes to cook.
If you love pasta, this recipe is for you. This meal is made for one.
2 to 3 turkey sausages sliced into ½ inch chunks;
1 cup of whole wheat bow tie pasta;
½ cup sliced green pepper;
½ cup sliced red pepper;
1 tablespoon of chopped onion;
1 glove garlic - minced;
1 cup of low sodium beef broth;
1 ounce low fat cheddar cheese - grated;
1 tablespoon olive oil
Cook pasta and place in a bowl. Set aside.
Over medium heat, add olive oil and 1/4 cup of beef broth. Heat for about 3 minutes and add turkey sausage and cook for about 10 minutes (cover the pan). Once cooked through, place in a bowl and set aside. Using the same pan, add another 1/4 cup of beef broth, peppers, onion, and garlic. Saute for about 5 to 8 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
Add pasta, turkey sausage, cheese and remaining beef broth to the pan (with veggies) and mix thoroughly. The cheese should be completely melted and mixed in with the pasta and vegetables.
