I recently took a poll on my Facebook page, asking what types of recipes my readers are interested in seeing. “Easy supper ideas” was the winner by far!
And I totally understand! The longer I go with Trim Healthy Mama, the more I am trying to simplify it. It can be overwhelming at first, but if you stick with it, you find out that you don’t have to make it difficult!
In fact, the Trim Healthy Mama plan CAN be done without any special ingredients! You can totally do the plan with simple ingredients that can be found at your local Walmart.
The special ingredients make it FUN, yes, but they are not necessary. As I mentioned, I have been trying to simplify things in my own life, and this Sausage Alfredo is one of the by-products of that simplifying process.
For lunches, I generally have leftovers. However, as my children are growing, we don’t have as many leftovers as we used to! So I have to think outside the box of leftovers a bit.
I usually make this as a single serve recipe, but you could easily multiply it to make it large enough to feed a family.
These sausages are one of my favorites. I used them in my Cheesy Cabbage and Sausage Skillet recipe, and I even used them as a pizza topping last week. (I actually used the Sam’s Choice Green Onion Sausages for this recipe, but this gives you an idea of what the packaging looks like.)
They are already cooked, so you just need to re-heat them. That helps make this single serve recipe FAST! (I purchased these at Walmart. There is 1 gram of sugar per sausage, so this is not a purist approach here, but they work ok for me. You can use your favorite sausage in place of these.) You could even use a chicken sausage to significantly reduce the fat and calories if you wish!
Zucchini noodles are so good, and they are a snap to make with a handheld spiralizer. I have one similar to the one below, and it has lasted me several years. You can have zucchini noodles in less than a minute!
