Sausage, spinach pasta

So no pictures on this one because the camera still needs batteries but dinner tonight was simple, tasty and worth sharing. I was feeling lazy and there isn't a whole lot in the way of groceries. I wanted more than just a box of Annie's so I started looking for ways to spice it up and get some more nutrition out of the meal. The following is what I came up with.

1 Box Organic Shells & White Cheddar Annie's
1 Small Onion
1 Fist full of Spinach
2 oz Ground Sausage

Cook pasta according to directions. While that's going dice the onion and cook over medium heat for about 5 mins. Throw sausage and spinach in with onions and continue cooking until spinach is wilted, onions are glassy, and sausage is done. Use some pasta water to make the sauce for the pasta and mix it in with the meat and veggies, then throw the pasta on top of it all and enjoy! I also threw a dash of creamy yogurt on top of mine for some added tangyness. Try it. And yes Dad-the-meat-man, I made something with meat for dinner. It was organic sausage and it was oh so wonderful.-Love you


  1. Yes it was very nom nom. I thought you might like this one, you can use just about any green veggie and it's a pretty good for you meal. The only way it would have been better for me would be if I left out the pasta sauce, which would have still been tasty, just not as creamy.
