Thanks for stopping by today, I have a recipe to share with you featuring Jennie-O All Natural Turkey Sausage
ALL NATURAL LEAN,
ONLY 5 GRAMS OF FAT PER PER SERVING
Now I know a lot of people think breakfast when they think of ground sausage, but honestly, ground sausage is pretty versatile!
Ground sausage can honestly be added anywhere you'd add meat; breakfast, lunch and even dinner.
From egg scrambles to salads, soups, sandwiches, pizza and even pasta dishes like lasagna for example!
So since here in our part of the Pacific Northwest, the weather has still been a bit chilly, I thought why now make a hearty soup? That's just what I did, it's an Italian inspired, hearty soup with lots of flavor.
For this recipe I used the following:
1 package of Jennie-O All Natural Turkey Sausage
1 small can of Low Sodium Vegetable Juice (mine was a 5.5oz can)
2 Cans Fire Roasted Diced or Whole Tomatoes (mine were15.5oz)
4 Cups of stock of choice (I used Vegetable, Low Sodium)
1 Can of Cannellini Beans (mine was a 15.5oz can and I believe No or Low Sodium)
1 12oz Box of Pasta of Choice (I used Tri-Color Rotini)
Season to taste: I added a pinch of fresh cracked Pepper, 1/4 tsp. of dried Italian herbs, 1/4 tsp. of chopped Garlic, as well as a 1/4tsp. of dried Chives, but honestly, it probably wasn't really needed since on its own the sausage is tasty!
This recipe is fairly easy and quick to make, while my water for the pasta was waiting to boil, I crumbled up my sausage in a skillet to cook and brown up.
Once the sausage was brown I took it off the heat and set it aside as I cooked the pasta.
Once the pasta was about a min from being done I took off the heat and drained it nearly completely and left maybe a 1/4 cup of pasta water in the pan with the pasta.
Next, I opened up all my cans, I drained and rinsed the beans and then dumped them in the pan with the pasta.
I then dumped the 2 cans of Fire Roasted Tomatoes with the juice
At this point, I added the 4 cups of Stock as well as the can of Vegetable Juice
After that, I just added my seasonings as well as the cooked and browned sausage. Once I stirred it all together, I then let it simmer until hot and served with a nice piece of crusty bread and let me tell you I am not much for leftovers, but this was even better the next day!
