Sausage Alfredo


  • 1 lb 99% lean ground turkey
  • 12-15 oz light alfredo sauce (I juse buitoni but homemade would be better!!)
  • 8-10 oz frozen spinach- you could always substitute broccoli just adjust cooking time or cook it prior to using
  • 1 box whole grain linguine
  • 2 tbsp sage
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper-to taste
  • parmesan if you want

  1. In large skillet brown and crumble the ground turkey.
  2. While cooking season with sage, garlic, onion, salt, and pepper (if you like spice, add crushed red pepper flake-my family doesn't so I add mine to my own plate later!!)
  3. If you see the turkey looking dry during cooking add 1/4 cup of water as needed, since it is so lean it won't have all that grease to keep it juicy so add just enough water to keep it from drying out.
  4. Cook pasta as directed and drain.
  5. Add in spinach when turkey is done and stir it in until it is thawed and well warmed.
  6. Add in alfredo sauce to turkey/spinach mix and stir until heated.
  7. Pour over noodles and stir.
  8. Garnish each plate with parmesan and crushed pepper flake (optional)

Browning the turkey with seasonings

Finished ground turkey sausage (this is the point I add in spinach...i left that out for some reason during photographing!)

Super easy, healthy, delicious!
