Sausage Spinach Pasta

How amazing does my sausage spinach pasta look! I have been the queen of pasta lately and I’m not mad about that! There’s nothing like lightening up a good pasta dish while keeping all the flavor in tact. I also love adding in some veggies to a pasta dish because you don’t even notice them!
