Orecchiette Pasta with Sausage and Vegetables

This meal takes very little time to fix.  Serve with a multigrain bread and perhaps a bowl of fresh fruit.

Orecchiette Pasta with Sausage and Vegetables

  • olive oil
  • 1 pound pork sausage
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow pepper, cut into large chunks
  • a small handful of oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • a handful of fresh spinach leaves – more or less!
  • 1 pound orecchiette pasta

Put a large pan of water on to boil for the pasta.  In a large skillet over medium high heat, drizzle a little olive oil.  Crumble sausage into skillet.  Add onion and garlic.  Stir occasionally to brown sausage on all sides.  Add yellow pepper.  If heat is too high, turn down just a bit.  Add canned tomatoes heat through.  When water boils add a handful of salt and the pasta.  Cook according to package directions.  Add oregano and a small sprinkle of salt and pepper to skillet mixture.  About five minutes before pasta is done add fresh spinach to skillet.  When pasta is finished remove skillet from heat and add pasta, using a large slotted spoon.  Mix well.  Enjoy!
