Sausage, Spinach & Sundried Tomato Pasta ( Makes 6, 1 cup, servings)
3 - Marc Angelo Mild Pork Italian Sausages ( I have a whack of these in my freezer that I need to use up, otherwise I would be using chicken or turkey which would definitely lower the cals even more.)
1 cup cooked Spinach
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes (moistened)
2 cup Italipasta Rotini
30 G Armstrong Light Medium Cheddar Cheese
Again- I just added the brands of the products that I use because it gives me a more accurate calorie count.
Cooked the pasta in boiling water and set aside in a bowl.
Brown sausage in non-stick pan (this seems like common sense amirite?)
When the sausage is cooked I added the spinach & tomatoes and a little water and fried them a little longer.
I added the sausage mixture to the bowl with the pasta and the cheese on top and mixed it up. Delish.

According to MFP, that one serving is 217 calories. THAT'S ALL!? Mind you, I ate 1.5 servings with my salad lol. If you use whole wheat pasta and chicken sausage it would be even better for you I bet lol. Actually, it might be a little less since I logged 2 cups of pasta as 600ml but i was not in the mood for math.
Salad was romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers & mushroom with 1000 Island dressing & 2 servings of pasta.
