Ingredients

    4 ounces whole-wheat pasta, such as shells or fusilli
    4 ounces hot Italian turkey sausage, removed from casing
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    4 cups arugula or baby spinach
    1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
    1/4 cup finely shredded Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese
    1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

Makes 2 servings, 2 cups each

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta 8 to 10 minutes, or according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in garlic, arugula (or spinach) and tomatoes. Cook, stirring often, until the greens wilt and the tomatoes begin to break down, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; cover and keep warm.
3. Combine cheese, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Measure out 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid; drain the pasta. Whisk the cooking liquid and oil into the cheese mixture; add the pasta and toss to combine. Serve the pasta topped with the sausage-arugula mixture.
