My apologies to the regular readers out there, I know I haven't been posting much. It's not that I haven't been cooking, it's just that I am in the middle of a very busy time at work. Between that and personal obligations, I just haven't had a lot of extra
time. I'll be trying to get back on the stick here.
All of us have those times when we are just too busy. Our tendency during those times is to go for prepared foods or take out, neither of which is particularly good for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This dish is quick, easy to make, delicious and filling.
As your pasta boils, simple brown your sausage with some shallots and mushrooms, finish it by adding some chicken or vegetable stock and balsamic vinegar and wilting some fresh spinach. It should all finish at about the same time, less than 10 minutes cooking
time and less than 30 including prep. For that little bit of work you get a great combination of nuttiness from the whole wheat pasta and pecorino, earthiness from the mushrooms, freshness from spinach, a little bite of sausage, shallot and pepper and a hint
of sweetness from the balsamic. And all of it for only 325 calories with 7 grams of fat and 8 of fiber.
