One-pot Spinach, Chicken Sausage & Feta Pasta

One-pot Spinach, Chicken Sausage & Feta Pasta

A little bit of Sunday meal prep goes a long way in this one-dish pasta recipe. Chicken sausage with feta is especially good in this recipe.

      • 2 tablespoons olive oil
      • 3 links cooked chicken sausage (9 ounces), sliced into rounds
      • 1 cup diced onion (see Tip)
      • 1 clove garlic, minced
      • 1 (8-ounce) can of no-salt-added tomato sauce
      • 4 cups lightly packed baby spinach (half of a 5-ounce box)
      • 6 cups cooked whole-wheat rotini pasta
      • ¼ cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives
      • ½ cup finely crumbled feta cheese
      • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil (Optional)


      • Heat oil in a large straight-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage, onion, and garlic; cook, stirring often, until the onion is starting to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Add tomato sauce, spinach, pasta, and olives; cook, stirring often, until bubbling hot and the spinach is wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water, if necessary, to keep the pasta from sticking. Stir in feta and basil, if using.
