One Dish Wonder of Yum
I want to share with y'all this super yummy, fantastic, easy, make-your-budget-happy meal. ;) I found this recipe on Pinterest one day and loved how simple the recipe looked. But I was skeptical as to whether it would really taste good, I just wasn't sure how I felt about the sausage/spinach combo. I mean, bacon and spinach - yes. But sausage and spinach? Hmm...
So I began cooking, first I cooked the sausage.
Then I added onions to the pan, cooked those, and poured in some tomatoes & chicken broth. Next, the uncooked noodles were added.
While that was cooking I shredded the yumminess that most people refer to as Monterey Jack cheese. (And not gonna lie, about a half cup of that didn't even make it to the pasta dish! I have a weakness for cheese... which is why the melted cheese looks rather skimpy on the finished product! ;) )
Lastly, I stirred in the fresh spinach until it was wilted and topped it off with what was left of the cheese and green onions. And let it get all melty and gooey and fabulous.
Turns out sausage and spinach and pasta is a delightfully scrumptious combination. What's more, this recipe is so cheap! And I mean cheap in the best of ways! :) Basic ingredients, little price tags, and it all cooks in one pan, so easy cleanup. This recipe is a keeper in my kitchen. :)
