Welcome to the wonderful week of recipe make overs! I love this week because it’s a great way for this great group of bloggers to share healthier versions of some favorite recipes! Today I am sharing this delicious one of my family favorites! We love sausage and peppers over linguine. I made a few minor changes to make it a healthier. Trust me, my friends, this is epic!
I swapped out pork sausage for chicken sausage. Right there that’s a huge calorie savings. Then, I used spaghetti squash instead of linguine! My boys, the carnivores, love it! They do not miss the carbs either! As you all know, I love to cook and hate the clean-up, so this recipe is the bomb because it has it all!
- One sheet-pan
