Zucchini Noodle Bowls with Chicken Sausage & Pesto
Carolyn A. Hodges, R.D.
“Cut down on prep time for this meal-prep zoodle recipe by using premade zucchini noodles from the produce section. Canned beans and precooked chicken sausage heat in about 5 minutes and add protein, while store-bought refrigerated pesto serves as a fast and flavorful topping.”
2 teaspoons olive oil
6 ounces cooked Italian chicken sausage links (about 2), sliced into ½-inch pieces
1 pound zucchini noodles
1 (14 ounce) can no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed
1 (7 ounce) jar roasted red peppers, rinsed and sliced
½ cup refrigerated pesto
1Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring often, until browned and heated through, about 5 minutes.
2Divide zucchini noodles among 4 single-serving containers with lids (about 2 cups per container). Top each with equal amounts of the sausage, beans, peppers and pesto.
3To reheat, vent the lid and microwave on High until the sausage is steaming and the noodles are tender, 2½ to 3 minutes.
