I'm always looking for delicious meals that are both healthy and delicious and Al Fresco Chicken Sausage makes it easy to create fantastic and healthy meals.  I tried three of their recipes.  




The Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup was super easy and very tasty.  It has receive rave reviews from many users.  I thought it tasted very good.  If you are like me and like bold flavors you might want to consider adding a little more seasoning.

The Grilled Mediterranean Greek Pizza with Sundried Tomato Chicken Sausage I had to tweak a bit because I only had the precooked Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage, but it was delicious with this sausage as well.

The Grilled Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage with Tomato Cream Sauce Over Linguine was probably my favorite recipe.  It was also very easy and very tasty.  I used penne pasta because that is what I had on hand.  I highly recommend this recipe.

I enjoyed these recipes and will making these recipes on a more regular basis.

We loved the al fresco products too! The tomato & basil chicken meatballs were our favorite. Try them if you haven't already. They are delish! Your photos look yummy!

O.C., we liked the recipes we tried, also. I wish the product were available in our area, too. I subbed the store brand from our local grocery monopoly (makes me angry that they've run all the other big chain grocers out of town). Great pictures!

About Me
I am a working woman married to a wonderful man for over 20 years and mom to a yellow labrador retriever named Rosie. I took up cooking later in life to try to help my family to eat healthier.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook foods with lots of flavor which sometimes means spicy but not necessarily. I also like to use marinades to add flavor. We like Asian, Cajun, Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican, and Southern dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up the kids generally did not participate in the cooking. My father did much of the cooking. Therefore, it was a lot of meat and potatoes. He made some excellent Texas style BBQ such as brisket and barbecue chicken.
My cooking triumphs
I consider it a triumph if I can make a recipe healthier and delicious so my husband does not realize it is healthy. Some triumphs include my "Kickin' Turkey Burgers, Asian Lettuce Wraps, and Braised Balsamic Chicken from this site.
My cooking tragedies
I have made several attempts to make desserts, such as cake, healthier and have not had as much luck with many of these. Whole cakes have gone in the trash after only one serving.
