I noticed on FaceBook (the world’s most reliable news source) that last Thursday was the first day back to school for some kiddos living in the south. How is that even possible? Where did summer go?
It’s only August 8th… how can it be that time already! There’s still s’mores to roast, beaches to visit, ice cream to scoop, and corn on the cob to devour.
I’m not sure how to cope with this. Hmm maybe some Strawberry Peach Rose’ Sangria would help?
Well as the saying goes… If you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em.
So in honor of all you parents who are busily shopping for pencils, notebooks and juice boxes… Here’s a quick, easy, healthy one-pan-meal that the whole family will love… Sausage and Peppers with Zucchini Noodles!
It’s hearty and healthy and full of so much scrumptious flavor. Zesty chicken sausage, fresh peppers, onions and garlic, and hearty Ragu Homestyle Pasta Sauce all tossed with some fresh, healthy zucchini noodles, and topped off with some yummy melted cheese. I just drooled a little. No joke.✌️
This all-in-one-dinner comes together quite nicely.
First you cook your sausage links in a pan on the stove.
Set the chicken sausage aside, and cook the peppers, onions and garlic in the same pan. Go a head and season the veggies with a little salt and pepper.
Meanwhile zoodle away a few zukes.
Then pour in the pasta sauce. Because it’s seasoned perfectly there’s no need to doctor these sauces – just heat and serve straight from the jar.
I told you this was gonna be quick and easy.
Now slice up your sausage and add it back into the sauce mixture.
Now fold in the zucchini noodles plus some fresh basil.
One of the many reasons I love me some Ragu Homestyle Sauce… it’s thicker and heartier so it hugs the zoodles perfectly. And who doesn’t like a good hug – right? (Well, probably your teenage son but he’ll grow out of that.)
Finally pour all this goodness into a baking dish.
Now top it with some mozzarella, Asiago and Parmesan cheese and bake for 10 minutes – just long enough for the cheese to melt.
Sausage and Peppers with Zucchini Noodles – Heavenly hearty cheesy zoodle perfection!
Not only will this quick weeknight meal make lots of tummies happy, but it also goes easy on the budget… leaving a little more funds in the wallet for that new iPad cover and those adorable high-top Converse.
Sausage and Peppers with Zucchini Noodles is a great healthy way to start out your New Year!
