Sun-Dried Tomato, Sausage, and Goat Cheese Pasta
I had another night to myself, which automatically means dinner on my own, which means PASTA. I picked up a new variety of chicken sausages from Sams–sun-dried tomatoes and provolone. I figured I’d go with the sun-dried tomato thing, add some of those, which of course meant GOAT CHEESE because goat cheese is just awesome with sun-dried tomatoes. I added in a few other random veggies I had on hand, some parm, and tossed it all with whole wheat pasta. DELISH. This is a single serve dish at 611 calories and 24 grams of fat.
