Penne Pasta with Brussels Sprouts In a Ragu
Cook Time : 10 minutes | Serving : 8 servings


  • 1 sweet or hot pork sausage link (casing removed, crumbled)
  • 3/4 lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 4 tsp olive oil (divided)
  • 4 cloves garlic (sliced thin)
  • 10 oz brussels sprouts (weight after outer leaves and stems removed)
  • 1 small onion (diced small)
  • 1 carrot (peeled and diced small)
  • 1 celery stalk (diced small)
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes (I use Tuttoroso)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • pinch crushed red pepper
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 lb whole wheat pasta (brown rice pasta for gluten free)

Cooking Method

  • In a large, wide skillet, add sausage and turkey over medium-high heat, breaking up the sausage and turkey as it cooks into small pieces.
  • When completely cooked through; set aside in a bowl.
  • With a sharp knife, cut the brussels sprouts into thin shreds.
  • To the skillet, add 2 tsp of oil over medium heat.
  • When hot, add the garlic and cook until golden (do not burn).
  • Add shredded brussels sprouts, salt and pepper and saute until tender crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes; set aside in another bowl.
  • To the same skillet, add remaining 2 tsp of oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add onion, carrot and celery, stirring well to coat with oil.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables turn golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Add crushed tomatoes, sausage and turkey, bay leaf, crushed red pepper, salt and fresh pepper to taste.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer about 30 – 40 minutes, or until sauce thickens.
  • Meanwhile, while sauce is simmering, put a large pot of salted water to boil for the pasta.
  • Add the pasta to the water 10 minutes before the sauce is done and cook pasta al dente.
  • Drain and add the pasta to the skillet and toss with the sauce.
  • Add cooked brussel sprouts, toss and place in a large pasta bowl.
