What’s for Dinner — This One’s a Keeper


I recently came across a recipe that looked so good…I had to clip and save it.  It’s from Taste of Home, my “go-to” site when I’m browsing for menu ideas. Of course, I added in a few ingredients and a bit of extra spices.

Last weekend when my daughter came to visit, this is what we enjoyed for dinner. It quickly disappeared. My husband’s rating: “You can fix this anytime you want.”

My recipe is below. It serves four.

Sausage-Spinach Pasta Supper




4 Sweet Italian sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch slices

1 Onion, chopped

2 Garlic cloves, minced

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 cans Chicken broth

8 ounces whole-wheat thin spaghetti

16 ounces fresh spinach, trimmed and coarsely chopped

Mushrooms (Fresh or canned)

Italian seasoning

Red pepper flakes

Parsley flakes

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Seasoned pepper

6 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

Parmesan cheese


In a large saucepan, cook the sausage, onion, and garlic in oil over medium heat until sausage is browned; drain. Add mushrooms and sautee until tender. Season with Italian seasoning, as desired.

Drain, then add chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. Gradually add in spinach. Cook and stir until pasta is tender and spinach is wilted.

In a small bowl, combine flour, seasoned pepper, and cream. Stir until smooth. Slowly add to pasta mixture.  Bring to boiling again; cook and stir until thickened — about 1 or 2 minutes.

Pour into serving dish and sprinkle with parsley flakes and red pepper flakes, if desires. Serve with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!


Yes, this one’s definitely on our “keeper” list. My husband is already asking when I’m going to fix it again. Soon, I’m sure. With breadsticks and a light green salad, it’s truly a wonderful meal.

Thank you for visiting today.

  2. I’ll have to try this! It looks like too much for the two of us but looks like it could be easily halved.

    • The original recipe at Taste of Home was for only 2 servings. I doubled it. If you go to the Taste of Home website, search for Sausage-Spinach Pasta Supper, and you’ll find the original version. Thanks for visiting today, and enjoy the dish 🙂
