A quick and easy dinner is just 30 minutes away with this super simple but super yummy pasta dish that the whole family will love. Sausage Spinach Spaghetti is just a few ingredients but it is a well balanced meal with a delicious alfredo sauce that you will be using on lots of other dishes once you realize how easy it is to make.

I prefer to use chicken sausage for this dish – mostly because it doesn’t have much added fat so the dish doesn’t become greasy. I specifically like to use Aidells Roasted Garlic and Gruyere Cheese Smoked Chicken Sausage. Usually it is in stock at my local Costco but I have seen it at Fred Meyers (Kroger) and Albertsons.

My family prefers wilted but not cooked spinach. That is why I just let the spinach warm up in the heat of the sauce. This method gets the spinach just soft enough to mix into the pasta. But it retains the bright green color to make the dish look just as yummy as it tastes.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
