Sausage Pasta

Sausage Pasta

Besides Sausage Pasta is the ultimate comfort food! Italian sausage in a creamy tomato sauce with fresh baby spinach and tender pasta. Topped with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese–this dish is unbelievably good!

Besides the sausage, This recipe includes a creamy tomato-based sauce, pasta, and spinach.

Here’s a quick breakdown of a few ingredients worth mentioning in more detail:

• Baby spinach: We recommend using baby spinach and giving it a quick coarse chop before adding. While the spinach doesn’t have to be chopped it does integrate better in the dish that way.

• Parmesan cheese: For the perfect melt and to ensure the measurement is accurate (so the dish isn’t too salty), take a block of Parmesan cheese and grate it on the small holes of your cheese grater. Measure and add!

• Half-and-half: This is a dairy product containing half cream and half milk–makes sense, right? It’s usually sold near the heavy cream and milk in the store.) If you can’t find half-and-half at your store, use equal parts heavy cream and milk. This keeps the pasta a little lighter while still ensuring it’s plenty tasty.
