I sliced a Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage in pieces and sauted them in some olive oil. Then I added some yellow bell pepper to that, 2 cans of diced tomatoes and a package of baby spinach...gave it a good toss then added some sliced mushrooms. I rinsed out one of the cans of diced tomatoes and added that water to the sausage mixture, along with some salt and pepper. I cooked some rotini pasta and when that was done, I rinsed it then added the sausage mixture to the pasta. The sausage mixture had been simmering for a few minutes. Added an Italian blend of 5 different cheese and tossed everything together. We sprinkled some more of the cheese onto the pasta after we dished up our plates.
The loaf of bread I got has Guyere cheese and black olives baked into the bread. The bakery at the store sliced it for me. I buttered a few slices and put them under the broiler for a few minutes to melt the butter and let the edges get a little crispy.
So here's what you need:
1 package of rotini pasta
1 package of sausage (your choice). (The actual recipe calls for Italian sausage. We like smoked sausage or Kilbasa)
1 package of baby spinach leaves
2 cans (14.5 oz) of Italian style diced tomatoes, undrained
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
fresh mushrooms ( I think I used 4 or 5), sliced
Salt & Pepper
Italian blend of cheeses or shredded Mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheeses
Hope you try it.
