Sausage-Spinach Pasta Supper Recipe

You won’t miss the marinara sauce once you taste this pasta dish flavored with chicken broth and Italian sausage. “It’s incredibly easy, and the ingredients create their own sauce,” notes Daphine Smith of Baytown, Texas. “My husband likes it so much that I make it once a week.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 Italian sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 4 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta, broken in half
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, trimmed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, cook the sausage, onion and garlic in oil over medium heat until sausage is browned; drain.
  • 2. Add broth; bring to a boil. Add pasta; cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Gradually add spinach. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until pasta is tender and spinach is wilted. In a small bowl, combine flour, pepper and cream until smooth; stir into pasta mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Yield: 2 servings.

MY REVIEW

"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."

"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?"

"Just made this for dinner and it was a hit! Everyone in the family loved it and is already looking forward to having it again. I used a hot Italian sausage (we like things spicy!) and it was full of flavor yet still light and tasty. Highly recommended and super easy! Yum! :)"

"That`s very inetersting way of cooking pasta! I love this way. I did bigger amount with using almost the whole bag of pasta so I had hard time to stir the sauce into the pasta even I had not wait until it thickened because all my sauce was absorbed by pasta at once."
