Zucchini "Pasta" Bake


5 lean turkey bratwurst links
2 cups sliced zucchini (about 3 whole)
2 cups sliced asparagus
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 clove garlic
4oz softened cream cheese
1.5 cups 5 cheese italian blend (or mozzarella)
1/2 cup grated parmesan (in a can)
1tbsp olive oil

First, get a pan hot, add 1tbsp of olive oil. Cut the bratwurst at a diagonal into about 5-6 pieces, and add to the pan. While the turkey is browning, cut the zucchini in half, then in half again (4 pieces), and then cut into penne pasta size bites. Cut the asparagus into this size as well. I just bought and measured out 2 cups of sliced mushrooms.

After the turkey has browned, add the vegetables and garlic and cook for about 10 minutes, or until they start to get soft. Then add the cream cheese, 1 cup of shredded cheese, and 1/4 cup parmesan and mix well until cheese melts. Place in a baking dish and top with the remaining shredded and parmesan cheese. Bake at 350* for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese gets brown and bubbly. Makes 8 servings.
