Recipe

I am starting to realize that there are a lot of sausage and pepper recipes on here. Honestly I never realized how often I cooked some variation of sausage and peppers until I started blogging and paying more attention to what we ate. I used to make this recipe using whole wheat of high fiber pasta, but since I am trying to eat more veggies and less carbs, zucchini noodles felt like the perfect substitute. The lean turkey sausage is a great way to add lots of flavor to the dish without too much fat and combined with the peppers, onions, garlic, oregano, and Parmesan cheese - you can't go wrong.
