The assortment of turkey sausage recipes demonstrated below confirms that this robust meat can be equally as tasty as beef and pork.

There’s no denying that turkey has a milder flavor than other kinds of sausages, but it’s not a big deal if you prefer your meat spicy or sweet.

And because it’s so mild and lean, it’s ideal for people who are trying to cut down on meat.

It’s also an excellent option for vegetarians looking for a tasty meat alternative.

So whether you’re looking for something light, healthy, or filling, this list has you covered.

1. Turkey Sausage And Noodles

Turkey sausage and noodles is the answer!

Serve this dish with fresh spinach and roasted potato wedges for even more flavor.

4. Baked Ziti

This baked ziti is a wonderful way to use up leftover pasta.

It’s made with ziti and parmesan, so it can be a bit more filling than simply cutting it into smaller pieces.

Since this recipe calls for marinara sauce, you’ll want to make that first!

Once the noodles are ready, mix the marinara and fresh herbs to taste.

I like to add some garlic as well.

This recipe is a delicious way to use up some of your leftover turkey, and the sun-dried tomatoes are the perfect finish.

Serves four.

I think it would be nice with some roasted Brussels sprouts on top.

7. Turkey Sausage And Cauliflower Stir-Fry

More and more, I’m loving cauliflower rice.

It’s an excellent replacement for pasta and it can be easily reheated.

It’s tender and fragrant while still having some crunch.

The sausages are cooked in a pan coated with tomato paste for maximum flavor.

They’ll be juicy and crispy on the outside.

Serve this turkey sausage and vegetables over rice or quinoa for a hearty meal!

The maple syrup and herbs are the secret to its flavor, so keep that in mind when you make this recipe.

14. Giada’s Orecchiette With Turkey Sausage And Broccoli Rabe

I like green beans with onions and peppers on top.

If you’re looking for more protein, try adding chopped chicken or shrimp.

It tastes just like traditional pasta dishes with plenty of robust flavors.

Plus, the inclusion of green olives makes this dish extra special and very tasty.

21. Turkey Sausage And Quinoa Pizza Bowl

I’ve never made a quinoa pizza before.

It’s not that I haven’t tried it.

It just doesn’t sound like something I would want to make on my own.

However, this recipe definitely changed my mind.

Instead of making a plain quinoa pizza, you’ll have the same flavors and textures as you would in a regular one.

But instead of tomato sauce and mozzarella, you’ll use sausage, mushrooms, spinach, and olives.

It has all the pizzazz of a traditional pizza without actually being one!

The broth is delectable and features spicy sausage, robust beans, and bright herbs.

I love this soup because it has such a unique taste that you can enjoy any time of day or night.

24. Southwestern Turkey Sausage Egg Cups

The key to good egg cups is to use a good quality pasteurized egg.

If you’ve ever tried the store-bought kind, you know it’s not the same.

My husband makes this recipe because he refuses to buy pre-made enchiladas and hates that they have no flavor.

He also likes using bulk sausage, which cuts down on work in preparation.

And I can never not be tempted by some of those Texas hot links!

While this recipe calls for uncooked turkey sausage links, I like to always keep my freezer stocked with links and make it overnight.

That way, there are always leftovers ready when we are.

25. Pasta Fagioli Soup

If you don’t have time to make a big batch of pasta, then this one’s for you.

It’s the perfect easy-to-make soup that only takes 15 minutes to cook.

And all you need is heavy cream, canned tomatoes, and your favorite pasta.

If you’re in a hurry, use frozen peas instead.

Just be sure to thaw them before adding them!
