I made this recipe just last night even though I didn’t have all the ingredients the first recipe called for.  My husband liked it so well he told me not to bother making it as I first had planned (now that might be a first).  The recipe is easy, does not require you to dirty a lot of pans and it’s really quite fast to make, which is always a plus for a week night meal!  Enjoy.  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com

Quick & Easy Spaghetti with Sausage Sauce

12 oz spaghetti

2 chicken/turkey breast brats sliced into bite size pieces

1 8 0z package of sliced mushrooms (portablella are my favorite)

3 Tlb. of tomato paste

1/2 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary

1/4 cup no fat half & half

Shredded low fat Parmesan cheese for topping (less than 1/4 cup)

Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the spaghetti.  Cook until al dente.  While spaghetti is cooking in a large frying pan that has been sprayed with Pam Olive Oil  add the chicken/turkey breast brat pieces (I used a smoked chicken breast brat and it gave a wonderful taste mixed with the rosemary).  Fry for about 3-5 minutes on med heat.   Add the mushroom slices and continue to stir.  When the brat pieces are no longer pink add the no fat 1/2 & 1/2 as well as the tomato paste and rosemary to the pan.  Stir to combine well on low heat.

Drain the pasta and save 1/2 cup of water.  Add the spaghetti to the fry pan with sauce, tossing to cover all of spaghetti.  If the sauce is too thick add a little of the pasta water at a time to reach the desired consistency.

Dish up onto plates and top with a bit of shredded Parmesan cheese.  So yummy!
