Fusilli with Italian Sausage & Arugula

A whole teaspoon of black pepper along with a small amount of Italian turkey sausage deliver a piquant flavor without adding too much in the way of saturated fat and calories in this quick pasta dish. For maximum taste, use a high-quality cheese.

This is one of my husband's favorite dishes and is in our dinner rotation about once every 2 weeks. I follow the recipe aside from doubling the amount of cherry tomatoes and never have issues with the cheese clumping.

Delicious, good amount of spice, easy to make

Delicious and easy!

I have made this multiple times, using mild italian sausage instead of hot (we aren't a fan of a lot of spice), and it is always very flavorful. Using good cheese makes it even better- although parmesan will still do the trick.

I had the same issue as others with the cheese clumping into one big mess. So I instead, added a little cheese at a time directly to the pasta. I got better results. Overall the flavor was good but not great. My picky boyfriend enjoyed it though so for those who like the less healhty food, this is a good way to sneak in some healthiness. I think if the sauce was a lighter garlic parmesean sauce it would taste better than a thicker cheese sauce.
