Sausage and Peppers Zucchini Noodles

This recipe serves 8 and 460 calories.

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 lb spicy Italian chicken sausage

1 lb sweet Italian chicken sausage

3 inch Peppers (red, orange and yellow), cut into strips

2 inch medium onions rough chopped into slices

6 cloves smashed and rough chopped garlic

1 teaspoon salt and pepper

5 small zucchinis, zoodled

1 jar pasta sauce 

10 leaves fresh basil cut into long thin strips (reserve some for garnish)

4 ounces of each of these cheeses, shredded: Mozzarella, Parmesan and Asiago

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cook sausage in olive oil for 10-12 minutes over medium-high heat (turning over once) and set aside.

Cook peppers and onions in the same pan for 8 minutes. Add garlic, salt and pepper and cook for 4 more minutes.

While the vegetables are cooking, zoodle your zucchini. Then cut the strands into ~8 inch pieces (this does not have to be precise, but cutting the zoodles now will make it easier to serve).

Stir the Pasta sauce into the pan with the peppers and onions. Slice the sausage into 1/2 inch pieces and add to the pan as well.

Fold zucchini noodles and basil into the mixture and allow to cook for 4 minutes on medium-low. Transfer to a 9×13 baking dish, and top with cheese.

Bake on 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted. Garnish with reserved fresh basil and serve.
