Easy Skillet Pasta with Sausage and Vegetables #JDCrumbles

My family loves pasta.  I try to change up the sauce so we don’t get stuck in a rut.  Now that my 1-year-old son is eating “big kid food” I am also conscious of including vegetables and lean protein.  I was excited when I was introduced to Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles because they have a turkey version that has only 70 calories but 11 grams of protein for a ½ cup serving!

This recipe combines vitamin packed vegetables including squash, zucchini, bell peppers and tomatoes, with the lean protein of turkey sausage.  The whole family, including my 1-year-old son, couldn’t get enough!
