Nutritional values

The savoury bratwurst contributes various B vitamins. Leek supplies minerals and sulphides that control the immune system and are good for digestion. The vegetables and pasta provide useful fiber. 

The pasta dish will fill you up even better and for longer if you use wholemeal pasta. Just factor in a few more minutes of cooking time.
