Penne or Rigatoni Pasta Italian Sausage Garlic Marinara Sauce Cream Cheese Baby Spinach

Cook the pasta until al dente, then drain and set aside. Meanwhile, brown the sausage, then add the garlic.

Let's Make It!

Reduce the heat to medium, then add in the marinara sauce and cream cheese and stir until melted.

Add the spinach in, handfuls at a time, and stir until wilted.

Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and stir to gently coat. Then serve and enjoy!

Can I Make This Dish Healthier?

Yes! You can replace the sausage with turkey sausage, or reduce the sausage by half and add in some sautéed veggies. You can also use light cream cheese instead of regular.
