The title is long...too long...but I didn't know what else to call it! This is my version of #310751 from food.com.
Italian Sausage Pasta with Spinach and Tomatoes
1-1 1/2 pounds bulk Italian sausage, cooked til almost no longer pink.
Add: 2 cloves of garlic, minced, and finish cooking the sausage.
While sausage cooks, cook 1 pound of brown rice penne pasta to al dente, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water when finished.
Add drained pasta and reserved pasta water to sausage on high to reduce liquid. Then add:
6-8 ounces baby spinach
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes (I usually use grape and I halve them)
Cook and stir til spinach barely wilts. Then stir in:
1 T butter
Garnish (heavily!) with freshly grated Parmesan!!!
Best pasta tip ever: IF you have access to a Trader Joe store, GET THE T.J. brown rice pasta! I think it holds its shape better than ANY other brown rice pasta out there! Best price, too! I stock up when I get near one. 'Can't wait til someone wises up and puts one near me!
