Last Sunday evening, I went to the store hungry. I had spent most of the day working on last week’s post Peanut Butter S’mores Dip and my people were ready for some relatively healthy food for dinner. Sausage stuffed with tomato, basil, and mozzarella to the rescue!
Normally my weekly food shopping includes a trip to our local warehouse store (where I stock up on essentials like greens, toilet paper and wine) as well as multiple trips to the supermarket.
Last Sunday, my first stop was the warehouse store. In my state of hunger, I was easily distracted by the section of stuffed chicken sausages . I thought “Hmmm… I could toss this browned sausage with the spinach I’ve already got in the cart and throw it over pasta I already have at home. No trip to the supermarket required for dinner tonight!” Yes, that is exactly how it happened. You can call it lazy or creative; either way, it was a win. I had one less stop to make and knew dinner would be on the table less than half an hour after I got home.
I knew I would like it because I like virtually anything with copious amounts
of garlic, basil and sausage.
We had all three offspring at the house for that dinner last Sunday and they all loved it too. So, they were happy to have it again this Sunday so I could take pictures of it for you.
Without further delay, here is the recipe for Happy and Yummy’s Fresh Spinach and Pasta Toss.
