Dukan Angel Hair "Pasta" with Tofu Sausage and Veggies

HE SAID: Pretty good for a low fat meal.
SHE SAID: Wow, loved it!

Angel Hair "Pasta" with Tofurky Sausage and Veggies
We've been trying recipes from a lot of Dukan diaries, but is our favorite so far.  Tonight we tried this recipe with a few adjustments.   We didn't use zucchini since the male half of this couple doesn't care for them.  Also used Japanese mushrooms since the male half will eat those but doesn't care for other types of mushrooms.  We added wine because we love cooking with wine and more red peppers because we both love spicy food.

Don Quijote in Hawaii sells the three types of tofu shirataki noodles made by House and they were on sale this week!  We also made ours with Tofurky sausages since we are trying to not eat sausages.  We loved the recipe.  The two bags of pasta made 3 large servings for us.

Serves: 2, plus a little leftovers
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

2 Tofurky sausages cut into small pieces (or 1 lb. italian sausage casings removed)
2 packages House brand Tofu Shirataki Angel Hair Noodles, rinsed and drained
1/2 small red onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 or 1 package Japanese mushrooms (or mushrooms of your choice, slice the larger ones)
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1 - 14 oz can crushed tomatoes
3/5 c. red wine
2 T. dried parsley
1 t. dried basil
1 1/2 t. Italian seasoning
1 t. red pepper flakes
2 T. fat free cream cheese (or 1/2 c fat free sour cream)
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, brown sausage with onions, bell pepper and garlic.  Add mushrooms and saute for approximately 5 minutes.  Stir in crushed tomatoes, wine, spices and pasta, stir, cover and cook for 5 more minutes.  Remove from heat, stir in cream cheese.  Return to heat for approximately 3 minutes or until hot.

We will definitely have this again and we may leave out the cream cheese next time.
