Sausage & Spinach Skillet

No reviews

This is an easy, week-night skillet dinner for 2. I keep bags of frozen spinach and peas in the freezer for quick winter meals.


  • 10oz (300gr) sausage, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 8oz (240gr) spinach, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup (8oz, 250ml) tomato sauce
  • 1 cup (8oz, 250ml) chicken broth
  • 1 1/4 cup (4oz, 125gr) pasta  penne, rigatoni, fusilli


  • Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add onion, pepper, and sauté 5 minutes.
  • Add chili powder, paprika, garlic, and sauté briefly.
  • Add sausage and sauté until it starts to brown, 3 – 5 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce, spinach, oregano, broth, and stir well.
  • Add pasta, stir well, and bring to a simmer.
  • Turn heat down if needed, cover and simmer 15 minutes.
  • Stir occasionally to keep pasta from sticking, add more broth if needed.
  • Serve from skillet.


I used frozen spinach, thawed, drained but not squeezed dry. If you use fresh spinach add 1/4 cup of water to make sure pasta has enough.
