What's for Dinner? Whole Grain Veggie Fussili with Turkey Sausage.


This is one of my favourite pasta dishes. My mother-in-law originally gave me this recipe but I've substituted a few ingredients to make it a bit more holistic. It definitly is a heavy meal so I suggest you have a big green salad with it to help digest and so you feel less guilty.
It's delicious and I'm sure you won't mind the cheat. Bon appetit!

1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
5 Spicy turkey sausage, crumbled (the real stuff with no fillers. I like http://www.butcherbynature.com/)
