(Family Features) - There's a chill in the air, inspiring menus to comfort and satisfy.
It's the perfect time for pasta. Rustic Sausage & Angel Hair is just right for a quick weeknight meal or casual entertaining. The combination of mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes and turkey sausage simmers only minutes to marry the flavors into a simple, savory sauce to complement, without overwhelming, the delicate angel hair.
While the sauce simmers, toss a salad to round out a homemade dinner that can be table ready in about 30 minutes. Angel hair is the busy cook's best friend. Just five minutes cooking and it's ready to serve as a quick side when tossed with olive oil, herbs and shredded Parmesan, or as a speedy vegetarian entrée with the addition of pre-shredded Italian cheese blend and steamed or sautéed vegetables.
Because it is prepared with Dreamfields pasta, a serving of Rustic Sausage & Angel Hair has only 17 grams of digestible carbohydrates (compared to 47 grams if traditional pasta was used), important especially for the 81 million Americans with diabetes or pre-diabetes. It's also a healthy choice for the entire family. Made with durum wheat semolina, the taste and texture are the same as traditional pasta, but with fewer digestible carbohydrates and a lower glycemic index per serving. It boasts twice the fiber of regular pasta (5 grams per serving which is comparable to whole grain pasta); much of it comes from inulin, a 100 percent natural prebiotic fiber which helps improve digestive health and supports a healthy immune system.
