Mealthy Tip

Skip the pasta and cheese and triple the amount of Brussels sprouts to drop the carbs and dairy while maintaining the great flavors. You can also swap chopped kale or spinach for the Brussels sprouts and your favorite lean protein for the chicken sausage.

I'm loving the glorious comeback that Brussels sprouts have been making in the past few years! It means they are easier to find in the store and I can find more and more interesting recipes featuring this tiny delicious cabbage. This recipe doesn't disappoint! Orecchiette pasta and the sausage are great with the sprouts and who doesn't love a cup of fresh Parmesan?! Fabulous.

Really good recipe! All of my favorite ingredients (pasta, brussels sprouts, and chicken sausage). I did shaved parmesan instead of grated, and it was perfect.

I used ground chicken instead of sausage. Such a delicious recipe, especially the lemon parmesan sauce. It was so good! I also added a little garlic too.

I skipped the Brussels sprouts and just did pasta with the chicken sausage and creamy lemon sauce. Very delicious.
