Quick Pasta with Sausage and Spinach Recipe

So, I threw together a quick pasta dish, ended up being 9 points for a heaping cup so I still need to work on my recipes to make them lighter… Anyway, I thought I’d share it because it was pretty good and I was proud to make something with solely what we had at home.

Makes roughly 8 heaping 1-cup servings for 9 P+ each.

2 links uncooked Italian pork sausage (around 1/2 pound)
1 box Farfalle pasta
6-7 shallots finely chopped
5-6 garlic cloves, minced
1 box frozen chopped spinach, thawed, and water squeezed out
1/8th cup olive oil
Pinch red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to taste

Put a large pot of water on for the pasta. Add pasta and salt when water is ready. In a large pan on med-high, cook sausage breaking up into little bits, drain on paper towel and set aside. Add oil, red pepper flakes, shallots, and salt to pan, cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook until shallots are caramelized. Add spinach and cooked sausage to blend together and heat through.

Add pasta to pan with 1/2 cup or so cooking liquid and mix everything together. Salt and pepper if necessary. Serve with grated Parmesan.
