Creamy Mushroom & Sausage Florentine Pasta

This was a super simple pasta dish packed full of sausage, mushrooms, and spinach in a yummy cheesy sauce. Great for a quick weeknight meal.

Ingredients List:

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

4 medium Italian Sausages (sliced into coins)

1 pound Bow Tie Pasta

1 8oz package of sliced Mushrooms

1 pinch Salt

2 cloves Garlic

1/2 cup Half and Half

1 5oz package of Baby Spinach

1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

1/3 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese

  1. Heat Olive Oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. When the Oil is hot, add the Chicken Sausage and cook until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta according to package directions.

  4. When the Chicken Sausage is browned, remove it from the skillet and set it aside.

  5. Add the Mushrooms to the skillet and season with a pinch of Salt, stirring till the Mushrooms start to release their juices.

  6. Stir in minced Garlic.

  7. Cook Mushrooms and Garlic till most of the liquid is evaporated and Mushrooms are slightly browned about 5-7 minutes.

  8. Pour Half and Half over Mushrooms and stir.

  9. Add Spinach to the skillet and toss until just beginning to wilt.

  10. Sprinkle in cheeses and stir until they're melted and have formed a sauce. (You can thin it out with pasta water if needed).

  11. Add cooked Pasta and Sausage to the Mushroom mixture and toss to coat and distribute ingredients evenly.

  12. Serve hot with an extra sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese over the top if desired.
