Simple and Healthy Pasta

Sorry for the absence for the past few days. Working on finals and everthing else in life is leaving me a bit short on time!

This pasta recipe is super simple and the original recipe bragged is was way better for you!

-1 box spaghetti (I was out so I used ziti!)
-1 package of chicken sausage (This time I used a 3 cheese sausage, I’ve used a chicken and Apple sausage and it was beyond fantastic!)
-1 medium onion, sliced
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1 t lemon juice
-1 C bread crumbs (I made my own but you can use store bought)
-2 T parsley, chopped
-1 t rosemary
-3 T olive oil
-Salt and pepper to taste
-Parmesan chees for garnish

1.Begin by boiling the water for the pasta. Make sure the pot is adequately large enough so that the pasta has room to move. Salt after the pasta has been added and never add oil to boiling pasta, it is untrue that it keeps it from sticking, the only thing you will accomplish by doing this is keeping your sauce from staying on your pasta!
2.Once the water is boiling add pasta and cook for 8-100th minutes for al dente.
3.In a separate skillet, spray eight nonstick spray, add onions and chicken sausage. Cook for about 5 minutes before adding garlic and turning sausage. (I added a splash of beer here, completely optional) Slice sausage into coins.
4.Drain pasta, add all remaining ingredients except bread crumbs and cheese. Stir to coat.
5.Toss in bread crumbs right before serving, toss with cheese!

I added an an Apple when I used the chicken and Apple sausage, feel free to expierement! You can also mix in a veggie like peas or broccoli.
