Spinach & Tomato Pasta with Italian Sausage. Main Course in Minutes.

Print Friendly

spinach & tomato pasta, recipe, main courseA hot meal is a great way to welcome your family home at the end of a long day – especially if you’re serving this pasta dish. There’s something about comfort written all over it.

I love cooking for my family and friends. Gathering around the table is often the one opportunity we have to be together and catch up on each other’s day. Those are the moments I cherish.

Even for those of us who love it, cooking can still become tiresome day after day. That’s one reason this pasta recipe is so great. It takes about 20 minutes from start to finish to get this on the table. Better yet, it’s one of my son’s favorite recipes. He asks for it all the time.

Don’t let the spinach scare you. The flavors of the tomatoes, cheeses, and sausage blend nicely so it doesn’t taste too “spinachy.” The sausage makes it hearty for the person with the biggest appetite at your table.

This is a recipe that’s easy on you – and your family will most likely love it. It’s a win-win. Go for it!
