This is my go to meal when I am feeling exceptionally lazy or am super busy. Usually every week when I go to the grocery store I will pick up some chicken sausages, spinach, and pasta so that I have it ready to go when I want something super quick and easy. I get fully pre-cooked chicken sausages from the store and change up what kind of sausages I get so that the dish is slightly different every time. I also love this recipe because the pasta stays good in the fridge as leftovers for 3 to 4 days and it is filling but also healthy. Additionally you can make this easy pasta with only 9 ingredients, but it is still super flavorful.
12 oz GF pasta of choice
4 to 5 cooked chicken sausages of choice
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cups loosely packed spinach
2 tbsp DF buttery spread
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
Salt & pepper to taste
Boil the pasta according to the box directions. Chop the sausages into bight sized pieces.
While you’re waiting for the pasta to cook, heat a large deep pan over medium to high heat. Add the olive oil and chopped sausage pieces.
Sauté the sausage pieces for about 3 to 5 minutes, until they begin to brown.
Turn the stove to low and add the spinach to the pan. Stir the spinach in until it just begins to wilt. If the contents seem dry at any point, you can add a bit more olive oil to the pan.
Add the cooked pasta to the pan followed by the DF buttery spread, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper.
Stir well until everything is fully combined. Serve hot and enjoy! You can save the leftovers for 3 to 4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
