#99 3/12 Completed {Make 12 new recipes}

Here is what I made tonight. So yummy! Even Kayla loved it. She decided to ignore her cup of milk to shove as much of this in her mouth as she could. She kept telling me, "This is yummy. I love it"

I found the recipe at:

Turkey Sausage and Tomato Sauce over Pasta


Turkey Sausage and Tomato Sauce over Pasta
Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: 8 Size: 1/2 cup sauce, 1 cup cooked pasta Calories: 324 • Points: 6.25 pts
  • 1 lb lean Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes (I love Tuttorosso)
  • fresh or dried basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup fat free ricotta
  • 16 oz uncooked whole wheat, high fiber or low carb pasta
Remove the casings from the sausage and saute in a deep skillet. When browned and cooked through, add crushed tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Add basil and ricotta and simmer another 5 minutes. Serve 1/2 cup sauce over approx 1 cup (2 oz dry) of your favorite cooked whole wheat, low carb or high fiber pasta.

And, here are my pictures:
