Tonight, our dinner was a paleo “pasta” dish. Zucchini spiralized noodles with jalapeño sausage and a coconut milk sauce turned cheesy using nutritional yeast. Super easy, delicious and filling!

1⃣Dice up 5 sausages into 1/4″ pieces and brown both sides in a frying pan (sausage flavor of your choice, I used jalapeño)
2⃣While those are browning, spiralize 4 zucchini
3⃣When the sausages are browned on both sides, stir in the zucchini noodles to heat thru and turn off heat
4⃣while the noodles are heating, in a small sauce pan combine:
🔹1 can full fat coconut milk
🔹1/4c nutritional yeast
🔹1 garlic clove, diced
🔹s&p
🔹garlic powder
🔹onion powder
🔹crushed red pepper
5⃣when sauce starts to simmer and is hot, pour into noodles and sausage and serve

Serves 4-5

Very easy one pan dinner! Found some all natural, no fillers or nasties added chicken sausage at Sam’s Club. These ones were spinach and asiago chicken sausage and they were amazing. Wanted to have them in a dish, not “hot dog” style so I came up with this!
(True paleo if you choose a sausage without cheese in it, but paleo if you eat dairy in your version of paleo)

1⃣Cook spaghetti squash via desired method
2⃣Slice 5 spinach & asiago chicken sausage links (or desired flavor) into 1/4″ pieces and put in a large pan to brown
3⃣Chop one head of broccoli into small florets and put in pan of sausage while it’s browning
4⃣When sausage is brown on both sides, pour in 1 can garlic and onion flavored diced tomatoes (regular would work as well, but if you use regular, I would dice an onion and add it along with some garlic when you add the broccoli to sauté)
5⃣Add in 1c chicken broth, cover pan and simmer for 5-10min until broccoli is tender
6⃣When tender, add in spaghetti squash, season with s&p, mix and serve

Serves 4-6

**Can also be a make-ahead, simply let it cool after mixing everything together, then either keep it in the covered pan to reheat over the stove or place it in a 9×13″ baking dish to be reheated in the oven.
