Tasty Tuesday- Chicken Sausage with Brown Rice Fusilli


Chicken Sausage with Brown Rice Fusilli

Phase1: Serves 3-4

2 cups brown rice Fusilli
12 ounces Chicken sausage
2 cups cubed zucchini
1 cup broccoli florets
1/4 cup minced red onion
1 Tablespoon crushed garlic
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Prepare pasta according to package. Strain and rinse. Set aside.
Cut sausage into 1-inch pieces. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of water. Sauté the onion, sausage and garlic until slightly browned. Incorporate the zucchini, broccoli, salt and pepper and cook until veggies are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
Add the pasta to the skillet and toss until warmed through.

This is my favorite meal so far from The Fast Metabolism Diet book.  I was surprised how much flavor it had without oils or sauces.  The onion and zucchini paired so well with the chicken sausage, and the brown rice fusilli was so yummy.  I didn't have broccoli on hand when I first made the recipe, so I just doubled up on the onion and zucchini.  This was a meal my family loved too.

    Would it be ok to add a can of diced tomatoes to this recipe?
