Tired of sifting through my drafts… December 17, 2008

…so, I better start posting them one by one. Some are waiting for pictures, some need a more accurate list of ingredients, while others need to have the steps revised. Well, here is the first to be completed:

Fusilli with sausage

1 box of whole wheat fusilli pasta(13.75 oz)

1-2 Tbsp olive oil

1 onion thinly sliced or diced

3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1 red pepper, diced

1 cup frozen peas

1 small can of sliced mushrooms, drained

1/2 lb lean turkey kielbasa or any similar sausage, sliced into half-moons

1 cup fat-free chicken broth

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Grated Romano or Parmesan cheese (optional)

Cook pasta according to the package directions, adding the frozen peas for the last minute.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic for 1-2 minutes, don’t let it burn. Add onion and saute for 3 more minutes. Add mushrooms and cook stirring for another 3-4 minutes. Move the mixture to the side of the skillet and add sausage sauteing until heated through (about 2 minutes). Add peppers, mix everything together and saute for another 3 minutes. Add the broth, bring to a boil and simmer for a few minutes. Toss fusilli and peas with sausage mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with cheese, if desired.

Takes about 30 minutes.

(Note to self: use any veggies on hand. Like yellow pepper thinly sliced, snow peas cut in half, asparagus tips, etc)
