On grilled polenta.
Or even straight up.
I made it on a busy weekday night while the boys at their turkey hotdogs (don’t judge-they were nitrate free ;)). I had this again for my 2nd lunch today. Haha…
Skinny Italian Sub
Here’s What You Need: (Makes 1, but super easy to multiply!)
1 Smart Chicken Hot Italian Chicken Sausage
3 mushrooms, halved and sliced
3/4-1 cup of marinara
1 Babybel light cheese (cut into pieces)
Handful of kale or spinach, chopped (optional)
1 bun (I used a sprouted grain one by Cybros that was awesome and six grams of fiber!)
Here’s What You Do:
Slice the sausage in half and remove it from the casing. Heat a pan over medium high heat and add the sausage, breaking it up with your spoon for 2-3 minutes. Add the mushrooms for about a minute. Add in the marinara and simmer for 3 minutes. Add in the cheese and then the kale and cook for 1-2 minutes. Scoop onto your bun, pasta, or polenta. Manga!
This sausage was a bit spicy for my boys, so I would go for sweet Italian sausage by Smart Chicken the next time. If they don’t like buns, you can definitely stir this into whole grain or veggie penne with a good dash of parmesan.

Note: I received the Babybel cheese from Laughing Cow, but the opinions here are all my own.
