Whole-Wheat Spaghetti & Turkey Sausage


Here is one of our favorite dishes that we highly recommend you try. The whole-wheat spaghetti and turkey sausage dish. This is one of those types of dishes that we will have occasionally or once a week on a Saturday or Sunday night (takes some time to make this). With this dish, you will get great complex carb and fiber sources with the whole-wheat spaghetti, zucchini, and mushrooms, some good saturated and polyunsaturated fats from the sausage and olive oil, and some decent protein from the sausage and spaghetti. This would make an excellent meal if it was higher in protein, so if you would like to tweak it, just add some lean ground beef, chicken, or fish into it. Enjoy!
