This pasta is a part of my Refined Sugar Free Program. But I’m sure you’re thinking, “but it has sausage, cheese, and pasta how could it be healthy?!” Well it’s all about balance; if you want to have something rich and carb heavy, then it is important to balance the rest of your day with low carb meals and I’ve shown an example of this in the program. Sausage, tomatoes, peppers, cheese and mushrooms are all full of nutrients, so as long as your portions are realistic, then enjoy it guilt free!
