Pasta Spinach Turkey Sausage Recipe

This is a great tasting low calorie pasta treat – prepare this for your next meal and you will love it.

Ingredients:

  • 12 ounce(s) whole-wheat short pasta, such as shells or twists
  • 8 ounce(s) hot Italian turkey sausage links, removed from casings
  • 3 clove(s) garlic, chopped
  • 8 cup(s) arugula, or baby spinach
  • 2 cup(s) halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup(s) finely shredded Pecorino Romano, or Parmesan cheese, plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon(s) freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil

Directions:

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta until just tender, 9 to 11 minutes, or according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, arugula (or spinach) and tomatoes. Cook, stirring often, until the greens wilt and the tomatoes begin to break down, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and keep warm.
  • Combine 1/2 cup cheese, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Measure out 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid; drain the pasta. Whisk the cooking liquid and oil into the cheese mixture; add the pasta and toss to combine. Serve the pasta topped with the sausage mixture and an extra sprinkle of cheese, if desired.
