Recipe Reblog: Sausage Pasta Bake

Comfort food to the max today, everybody! And special bonus, the main colors in this dish are red and green. Christmas pasta, anyone?

Baked Pasta with Sausage and Spinach: This recipe comes from Gina's Skinny Taste, a great site for healthy and delicious recipes of all kinds. Spend a little time going through her recipe index. It's worth it. I was looking for a 3-nighter (what John and I call a meal that we eat for 3 nights effectively cutting out a day of cooking). A 9x13 pan of pasta, sausage, spinach and marinara? Yeah, that'll work. We lightened it up (as Gina recommends) with chicken sausage. If you're afraid of chicken or turkey sausage, this is a good one to try it with as it's hidden amongst lots of other ingredients. I took a shortcut and used frozen spinach instead of wilting in fresh. Not only did this serve us for 3 nights, but we also froze 2 servings so, it feeds a crowd. This was really good and SUPER filling. It came together pretty quickly too. It can be prepared ahead and baked later on, which is a nice time saver. Give this one a try when you're all ham and turkeyed out from Christmas!

How's your shopping coming along? Got all your presents wrapped? Get cracking!
