It only takes 30 minutes to make and enjoy this Creamy Sausage Pasta recipe with fettuccine, browned sausage, and fresh spinach all in simply made, creamy pesto sauce.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as label directs for "al dente." Just before pasta is done cooking, remove about 1/2 cup of pasta water and set aside. Add the spinach, give a brief stir to wilt, and drain pasta with spinach.
While pasta is boiling, heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Once it's hot, add COLEMAN ORGANIC® Spinach Chicken Sausage medallions and sauté for 5 minutes, or until golden brown on each side. Remove sausage to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
Lower the temperature of skillet to medium low and melt butter. Add the half and half, lemon zest, nutmeg, salt, and pesto. Bring the liquid to a simmer and add drained pasta with spinach. Use tongs to toss and coat pasta in sauce. Stir in cheese and season with more salt and pepper. If you need to loosen the sauce to coat the pasta, stir in just enough pasta water until the sauce thins out. Stir in cooked sausage.
Divide among plates and top with more parmesan and pepper, if desired.
