Introduction

Another recipe I collected. I loved the full fat version of this I had with a friend. I was glad to find a heart healthy version. Still very good. You can substitute whole wheat or a plus type variety of pasta. I prefer the sausage sliced into rounsd or diagonal cut. It looks more appealing. Another recipe I collected.

Ingredients

    1 lb Rigatoni
    1 lb hot italian style turkey sausage frozen and sliced into rounds, casings removed and then dethawed
    2 tsp olive oil
    2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1 (10 oz) bag fresh spinach
    4 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

1) Cook pasta according to package directions.
2) Meanwhile, coat large skillet with non stick cooking spray. Add sausage, cook rounds turning when browned about 7 minutes. Add olive oil and garlic, cook about 30 seconds. Stir in chicken broth.

    I make this all the time! It's so delicious, I can't believe it's so healthy. I crave this dish as much as I crave some fatty unhealthy dishes. The only thing I do different is instead of freezing and cutting the sausage, I just remove the casings and crumble and prepare this way and it's great! - 7/14/10

  • This was so easy and tasty! I added cauliflower to up the veggies and a few red pepper flakes to add a little kick. I will definitely make this again. - 4/21/11

  • Absolutely delicious. I substituted minced garlic from a jar and did not use the reserved pasta water. Such a generous serving and oh so filling. I'll definitely be making this again. - 4/18/09

  • I used Mexican hot chorizo and used it like ground beef. This was so simple but so EXTREMELY good. My wife has made me promise that I'll be making this once a week for a while. Thank you for posting this one. - 11/18/08
