Ingredients

  • 3 Jennie-O hot Italian sausage links
  • 1 cup whole wheat penne uncooked
  • 5 oz baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pasta sauce (I use trader
  • Joe's organic marinara)
  • 2 tsp coconut or olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1 cup shredded cheese blend
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Boil 6 cups water with a pinch of salt and add penne. Cook according to box, approx 10 minutes.
  • While pasta is cooking, in a large sauté pan cook the turkey links in 1/4 cup water. Add more water if pan starts to burn and sausages are not cooked through.
  • Once sausages are ready, remove and dice into small rounds. Put aside.
  • In the same sauté pan, heat 2 tsps coconut or olive oil over medium heat. Add spinach and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook spinach until completely wilted.
  • Add garlic, mix and cook for another minute.
  • Drain pasta and pour into a 9x9 baking dish.
  • Add sausage pieces and spinach (you can do a quick chop on the spinach if you like smaller pieces). Mix together.
  • In a bowl, mix Greek yogurt and pasta sauce. Pour over pasta. Mix until everything is well incorporated.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top and bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is bubbly and brown on top!
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Each serving equals 1 yellow, 2 red, 1 green, 1 blue and 1 tsp
