Mediterranean food is incredibly satisfying. The high amounts of fat, vast array of flavors, and ease of cooking often makes Mediterranean meal-prepping a slice from heaven.
We have a recipe that combines all these aspects into a high-protein, one-dish meal: 1-Pot, 20 Minute Greek Pasta. This dish is perfect to have with your family, eat if your friends are in town, or even if you want to switch up some pre-made meals. Adjust your macros accordingly, and indulge!

3 chicken sausage links, sliced
