actually, i've been baking up a storm, but since the actual baking is taking quite a lot of time, this blog post will be about a very simple, but delicious pasta dish that can be thrown together in less than 30 minutes.this is what hubby likes to call a one-pot meal. just everything thrown together. there are many variations that i go through, but this is one of hubby's faves. and mine. it's tasty, easy, and like most of our other food, somewhat healthy.
3 links of turkey sausage (we like jenny-o, sweet italian style)
penne pasta (you could use whole wheat to up the healthy factor)
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 tsp olive oil
~ 3/4 cup frozen spinach
jar pasta sauce, about 1 cup
break out the Forman grill, heat it up and put on the 3 turkey sausage links.
while that's going, start pasta water
chop the garlic
heat pan and oil
saute your garlic, then add the frozen spinach and saute, then add pasta sauce
pasta water should be ready now, add penne
turkey sausage should be done by now. take off the grill and let it rest for a minute on a cutting board.
slice turkey sausage, add to garlic/spinach/sauce and cook on low until pasta is ready.
drain pasta, but keep a little water and add it all to sauce mixture.
mix and let cook together for just a minute.
check to see if you need any more salt/pepper.
the whole thing should take about 20 minutes.
you could add other things if you want. it's just a very casual weeknight sort of dinner.
