I have noted this recipe as "healthy" because I make it with Turkey Italian Sausage and EggBeaters.

Ingredients

8 oz
turkey italian sausage
1/4 c

16 oz

1/2 c
shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 c
parmesan cheese, fat-free; divided

2 Tbsp

2 Tbsp

1/4 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook and drain Fettucine. Meanwhile, brown sausage in an oven-proof skillet (ie, iron skillet)and drain. Add onion and cook until tender. Stir in tomatoes and oregano and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn off stove and stir in Mozzarella and 1/4 cup parmesan.
2
Toss the noodles with 1/4 cup parmesan, margarine, EggBeaters, parsley and garlic powder.
3
Place fettucine mixture on top of the meat mixture in the skillet.
Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
4
The pasta will look dry when you remove it from the oven but no worries - it is fine.
Turn out onto a serving platter so the meat is on top. Cut into 8 wedges with a knife or pizza wheel.
5
Serve with a tossed green salad.

NOTE: I prefer my sausage to be small so I use my chopper attachment for my blender and break up the meat into very small pieces.
