Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still slightly firm, about 8 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the sausage. Cook and stir until the sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in the spinach and tomatoes, and cook until the spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes. Mix in the cooked rotini pasta, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Toss until cheese is melted.

Tomato Spinach & Cheese Pasta Haiku: "Needed more flavor. But very easy to make. It just needs some 'oomph.'" Made this as directed, using mild italian sausage instead of bulk pork (glad that I did b/c it added much-needed flavor as otherwise, it would only come from the Italian diced tomatoes), and I put it all together in the morning, topped w/ the mozzarella and parmesan and baked 350 deg. for 30-40 min. at dinnertime. My daughter loved it, my husband doused his in hot sauce, and I added salt and dreamed up what I would add to it next time I make it.

cooked as directed it didn't have much flavor. I added a Vidalia onion and a tablespoon of garlic, 1 teaspoon each basil and oregano. it was very flavorful. Serve it with Garlic Butter (found here) on your favorite bread. Thanks, Happy Cooking!
