Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
- 1.5 tbs olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb pork sausage
- 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 2 cups low fat milk
- 1 (12 oz.) container pico de gallo (or salsa)
- 12 oz. pasta of choice (rotini here)
- 3 handfuls spinach
- 1 cup shredded gruyere cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
Remove casings from sausage by slicing them lengthwise.
In a large pot, heat the oil on medium high. Add the onion and saute until translucent – 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant – 30 seconds. Next, add the sausage and with a wooden spoon, break up the meat until no longer pink – 5 minutes. Add the broth, milk, pico de gallo, pasta and season with salt to taste. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes or until pasta is al dente. Add the spinach and toss to just wilt. Shut off the heat and mix in the cheeses. Serve.
Yields 4-6 servings.
