One Pot Sausage and Zucchini Pasta

If you’re looking to change up your weeknight pasta game this is the recipe for you – with a handful of simple ingredients and 20 minutes time you will have a flavorful and healthy pasta dinner ready for your family!

We have pasta about once a week in our home – and although I do love a simple butter and Parmesan cheese sauce, I go crazy for a red sauce. Normally a “good” red sauce cooks for hours over low heat and develops it’s flavors, but who has time for that during the week?

Our recipe combines zucchini, browned Italian sausage and a few classic herbs to create a sauce that tastes like Gramma used to make – and it record time too! See below for your shopping list of ingredients.

Slow cooker chicken thighs are nothing new. In fact, you probably have at least a half a dozen recipes from your childhood that you can avidly remember your mom making for Sunday supper.

What makes our chicken dish better than those of your past is that it is healthier, lower in sodium (no cans of creamy chicken anything here!) and guaranteed to be devoured by even the pickiest eater at your table!
