Organic! Pasta with Turkey Sausage and Brussels Sprouts

Organic!  Pasta with Turkey Sausage and Brussels Sprouts
Meeshie Nguyen

Hi NEMs!!!

Gosh!  It has been a while since my last recipe blog post but I have a great dish for the summer!   This Pasta with Turkey Sausage & Brussels Sprouts is made with mostly ORGANIC ingredients (it would have been entirely organic, but I didn’t have any organic olive oil…ooops!) 


  • 1bag of Organic Pasta
  • 1pkg of Organic Turkey Sausage – I used Applegate Natural & Organic Meats that you can find at your local grocery store
  • 2/3lb. Organic Brussel Sprouts
  • 3 tbsp. organic olive oil
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • Salt & Pepper



  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
  • Wash the brussel sprouts
  • Cut the dark flat ends off

  • In a mixing bowl, add the minced garlic and olive oil
  • Toss the brussel sprouts a few times to evenly coat

  • Cover a baking pan with foil
  • Spread the brussel sprouts around the baking pan


  • Bake for 30-40 minutes checking at 20 minutes and shake the sprouts around in order to brown
  • Next, boil water in order to cook the pasta (according to package)
  • While you are waiting for the water to boil, chop the turkey sausage in halves
    • If you don’t eat meat, you can substitute with tofu – just brown the tofu with your favorite sweet marinade like light teriyaki sauce

  • In a pan, add 1 tbsp of olive oil and cook the turkey sausage according to the package instructions.  I like my turkey sausage a little more on the brown side so I cook it a little longer! 😉

  • Don’t forget to put the pasta into the boiling water and set your timer
  • Once the brussel sprouts are cooked, add to the turkey sausage pan and stir

  • Drain the pasta and you can add a pat of organic butter or 1tsp. olive oil
  • Top off the pasta with the turkey sausage/brussel sprouts

  • ENJOY!
