Every once in awhile I go through my freezer and pantry and create a dinner from the ingredients that I find. So this time I used, pasta shells, chicken sausage, spinach and a can of crushed tomatoes. Voila Dinner!
1 lb of pasta shells
8 oz frozen spinach (drained)
1-28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
1 lb of chicken sausage (casings removed)
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 small onion diced
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in large skillet, add sausage and cook through. Remove sausage, set aside. Heat additional tablespoon of olive oil in the same skillet, add onions and cook until starting to brown. Add 1/4 cup of white wine and deglaze pan but scraping up brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Cook for 2 minutes and then add spinach and cook for another 2 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes, parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper. Add sausage back to tomato mixture and cook over med heat for 15 minutes. Cook pasta, drain and add to sauce. Add additional parmesean cheese if desired.
