5 Healthy Ways to Use Stewed Tomatoes


Turkey Sausage Pasta Toss

Healthy foods can be delicious, but the key to eating right is to find tasty substitutions that offer a healthier alternative. This turkey sausage pasta toss does just that by including turkey sausage -- as opposed to its pork counterparts -- for lots of low-fat protein. A stewed tomato base gives the pasta a hearty taste. Add reduced-fat pesto, fresh asparagus or broccoli while the mixture cooks. After letting it simmer, serve it over cooked penne pasta. You're not done yet: Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the dish for the finish.

Stewed tomatoes lend themselves well to soups, like the one on the next page.
