Zucchini Noodle Pasta

A quick, gluten free pasta that is full of veggies is a great recipe staple to have in your repertoire.  I, like most foodies, in the past few years, have embraced vegetable noodles!  They are a great substitute for those of you who can’t have wheat/gluten or are trying to limit it in your diet.  I particularly like the zucchini noodles.  Which is why I developed this Zucchini Noodle Pasta recipe!

It has protein in the form of my favorite quick ingredient: pre-cooked chicken sausages!  It has lots of veggies with diced tomatoes and the zucchini noodles, balanced with a little fat from garlic olive oil!  It is light, super quick & easy to make!  It’s Top 8 Free & I hope you enjoy it!
