This one was a “hope it turns out” and ended up being a very tasty meal. A little bit of heat to this but not much, lots more veggies than it looks like, very good overall. Even my (soon to be) 4 year old son liked it.
(Sorry for the fuzzy pic, the steam kept fogging up my lens…)
1 pound spiral pasta (save 1 cup of pasta water before draining)
1 pound mild pork sausage
2 cups sliced bell pepper
4 cups fresh spinach (or 1 cup frozen and thawed)
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1 jar roasted poblano alfredo sauce
Cook pasta until al dente and set aside. Brown the sausage and drain the fat off. Add the bell peppers to the sausage and brown until slightly soft. Add spinach and wilt. Add pasta water and alfredo sauce. Stir together well and pour over pasta. Add green onions and stir. Let sit for a couple minutes so the pasta can absorb some of the sauce, serve and enjoy!
