Recipe Swap Tuesday ~ Chicken Sausage Pasta

I've been trying to cook with less red meat, and have switched to ground turkey and chicken sausage for the most part. Just simply switching out Italian sausage for chicken sausage will significantly cut out calories and fat from your meal.
Chicken Sausage Pasta

Chicken Sausage Pasta by greenfashionistablog 



Ingredients

Olive Oil
1 package of chicken sausage
1 box of pasta
Container of cherry tomatoes
1 can of chicken broth
Onion and garlic to taste, diced
1 tsp. of dried basil
10 oz. of spinach
Shredded parm cheese

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente; drain and reserve.

In a large pan or skillet heat olive oil and chicken sausage. Cook through until the meat is no longer pink. 

Add diced onion and garlic to pan.

Add a can of chicken broth, 1 tsp. dried basil, and cherry tomatoes.

Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, then slightly reduce heat.


Add 10 oz. spinach cover and let simmer until spinach is tender (I skipped this step since H doesn't like spinach)

Add pasta to pan and mix together. Sprinkle with shredded parm cheese and serve. 


Very yummy and good for you!
