“bowtie” pasta

UPDATE! Aldi’s has pasta now too! Make sure you buy a brown rice and quinoa pasta. It is delicious and nutritious!

My kids LOVE this meal. They devour it! Our version of this recipe no longer can be “bowtie pasta” because they don’t make a gluten free “bowtie”….

  • gluten free pasta- TJ’s spiral pasta works well
  • 1 lb. ground sausage. We use Bowman and Landes turkey sausage
  • organic frozen chopped spinach
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • parmesan cheese

Brown and crumble the sausage in a pan. While that is cooking start a large pot of boiling water to cook pasta. Be sure to not overcook the pasta! Put the spinach in the microwave to heat up then drain the liquid off in colander. Add the spinach to the cooked sausage. Drain the pasta in the colander and add the butter to the hot pan then add the drained pasta. Then add the spinach and sausage. Serve with parmesan cheese grated over the top.
