While pasta is culturally associated with Italy, it is said that the idea came from ancient Asian noodles. A common belief is that it was brought to Italy from China by Marco Polo during the 13th century.
Regardless of where it came from, pasta is one of my favorite foods to indulge in. Let us not forget that with me being nit-picky about the foods I am eating based on my new fitness journey; pasta isn’t exactly the go-to anymore. Some of my favorites would have to be lasagna, stuffed ravioli and Fettuccine Alfredo.
I made a Sausage Fettuccine with a tomato based sauce and of course for all my health guru’s, instead of using whole wheat fettuccine like I did, you can substitute with zucchini pasta or another veggie pasta of your choice. Give it a try. It’s a yummy dish!
