Healthy sausage pasta can be possible, if you're willing to try a few things. Cream of ________ Soups are a great way to add a bit of extra creaminess to a meal without much added fat. Make sure to buy the healthy request soups, if possible, to avoid an over abundance of sodium. In this recipe, the cream of mushroom allows the sausagey fennel taste to shine through making you think you're indulging when, in fact, it is ground turkey. A lot of people think ground turkey can be dry (especially the 99% stuff), but I find as long as it has enough liquid supporting it, it will turn out just fine. Give this healthy sausage pasta dish a whirl!
