• 1 box whole wheat or vegetable pasta
  • 3-4 spinach and chicken sausages (we get these at Sam’s.  They’re incredible.  You could use any kind but these specific ones are our favorite.
  • 6 oz box of baby spinach (I think they’re called clamshells?)
  • olive oil
  • garlic salt
  • red pepper flakes
  1. Cook pasta according to directions.  Heat sausages in a pan (or according to directions).
  2. Put spinach leaves into colander in the sink.  When pasta is finished cooking, pour pasta and water into the colander and let sit for a minute or two, then stir to help wilt the spinach (best kitchen hack ever.  Because health.)
  3. Pour pasta and spinach mixture into a large bowl and add olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper flakes to taste.  Add sliced sausage and voila- balanced meal.



This may seem very basic (because it is) but these flavors work really well together and the best part- this is CHEAP and it makes tomorrow’s lunch too.  Boom.
