Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown the crumbled sausage for about 8-10 minutes, breaking up with a spoon; drain any fat and set aside.
  2. Add oil to the skillet and add in carrot, celery, onion and garlic; cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the veggies are tender.
  3. Stir in tomatoes with juice, wine, tomato paste and the cooked sausage; mix to combine and reduce heat to a simmer; cook for about 45-50 minutes or until sauce has thickened (cook longer if desired).
  4. Meanwhile cook the pasta until just firm-tender; drain, but reserve 1/4 cup of the water.
  5. To the reserved water in a saucepan, add in the fresh spinach, beans, parsley and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, cream, salt, pepper; cook over medium heat until hot and the spinach has wilted (about 3-4 minutes).
  6. Toss sauce with pasta in a large serving bowl.
  7. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
