Reviews for Sausage-Spinach Pasta Supper
"I'm a fan of one-pan meals and skillet suppers. This one is super quick and easy. Just serve with fruit and milk for a great balanced meal. I use turkey Italian sausage with the casings removed, and just break it up as it browns; and fat free half & half in lieu of heavy cream, just because I keep the FFHH on hand. It makes its own sauce and seasons itself except for a tiny bit of pepper. Definitely a great addition to anyone's menu rotation."
"I made this with sausage I had in the frig. The only instructions I would change is to make the sauce before I put in the pasta and spinach. Also, I would completely cook the pasta and just add to heat thru. I used coffee cream instead of heavy cream. Next time I would use heavy cream because the sauce would be thicker. Added Parmesan for topping. This is a keeper but next time I will make the changes."
"this is so easy and so delicious....am making again this weekend and printing out this recipe for the girls in the office..."
"This was a delicious and easy recipe.. thank you. Certainly a keeper."
"I have always rinsed my pasta after cooking because of the starch content,maybe I am wrong and it is OK to cook in the broth and eat?"
